World’s last airworthy Lancaster Bombers fly over the Lake District

September 8th, 2014

The world’s last two airworthy Lancaster Bombers were filmed flying over Windermere in the Lake District on Sunday.

The flyover was organised in honour of Britain’s last surviving Bomber Command veteran, Archie Johnstone, of Grange-over-Sands, who died in April this year.

Vera and Thumper, the two planes seen in the footage, glided across Thirlmere reservoir in Cumbria before flying the length of Windermere.

The Bombers are famous for their ‘bouncing bombs’ used in Dambusters raids against German dams during World War Two.
