At night in the fog, police stopped a car that was driving very fast: - Sir, if you drive so fast, you will kill someone!
- You know, young people - a military man, that was sitting behind the wheel, said wearily, - every night I kill tens of thousands of people...
In the car was sitting commander of the Royal Air Force Bomber Arthur Harris, and British four-engined bomber Avro Lancaster was helper for marshal in his sorrowful labors...
Such is the sad story ...
Excellent set!
Regards Valery
Great shot of this iconic machine.

Cant afford such luxuries as flying beside aircraft to take photos
Yesterday I went to Duxford & found it possible to fly beside a flying Spitfire in a De Havailand Dragon Rapid
for about 15 minutes to take photos----The cost 400
