Remaining flying Lancaster bombers united again

August 16th, 2014

A Canadian- based Lancaster Bomber joined a Lancaster from the Royal Air Force to fly in the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

The flight, which was due to pass over Lincoln Cathedral with the Red Arrows, was cancelled, due to bad weather.

The event was due to reunite the two remaining flying examples of the Second World War plane for the first time since the 1960s.

These aircraft are the only airworthy examples in the world and this will be the first time since the 1960s that they have flown together.

They will be displayed together at events up and down the country before the Canadian Lancaster flies home.
