Really lovely photographs  Smiley
We lived near Northolt during WW2 so bring back childhood memories.
Perhaps my most memorable flight was in a DH Chipmunk when we took off from Rochester and flew upside down over Southend Pier. That would be about 1950 when in ATC.

My OH flew the Lancaster for 6 years on BBMF and he always says the best part of the job was allowing veterans access to the a/c again and watching the years fade as they remembered the years gone by.

Re: RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight amazing Photographs

Thats a terrible shame. Still being a WW2 aircraft with no technical authority anywhere, i'll bet someone will rebuild it with some duct tape and superglue and it'll be allowed to fly again.
Unlike the vulcan...
