A Lancaster Bomber flew over our house a short while ago.
It was very low, very loud and not on the runway flightpath, it must be from the Cosford Air Show that's on today.

We had a second flyover a couple of hours ago and it was a Dakota.
The one in the photo has four props whilst the Dakota has two.
The Lancaster has vertical tail fins which the one in the photo does not have.

There is a Hercules at the show and I think that is what's in the photo.

Picked up an RAF car mascot for a fiver so pleased with that though it was freezing at the boot early this morning.Also got another book,I get through them at a huge rate so always on the lookout for one I fancy.Had lunch at Morrisons ,huge portions and really cheap.After getting up at five cooking was not on the agenda.

I managed to get the second plane, not brilliant quality it was so far away.


I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left.

They don't fly over my garden, I wonder if it's because they can see this in among the kids toys.

Good morning everyone, watched a hell of a fight earlier a bunch of gulls was attacking a heron on a roof opposite, it put up a good fight until a couple of magpies joined in an went for its legs.
