Lancaster flypast

By absurd
Taken this morning at the Dambuster 65th Anniversary flypast. I had a fantastic view from Lead Hill overlooking the road at Ashopton. It was a great pity the sun wasn't out but it was worth the climb anyway.

I wanted to go and shoot it today. Couldn't make my mind up whether to go on top of Bamford Edge, Below the dam or on the dam. I ended up not going - I bet it was an amazing experience watching it fly past.

A pity you didn't go - it was a great experience, Dave. I just wonder how much longer they'll be able to keep the old lady flying.
The sky was rubbish so shooting from on or below the dam wouldn't have produced as good pictures as from the Edge.

I saw this on Sky News! It must have been wonderful to actually be there. You've caught the Lancaster beautifully!
