Worth looking out for. It came right over our house back in July.

The last few working Avro Lancasters, with a Spitfire Entourage, flew over my house a few years ago.

Nothing quite like the sound of SEVERAL Merlins  :wink:

It's surreal seeing and hearing something like that.  I don't think baby boomers, millenials and generation Z can fully appreciate the reality and horror of war, where millions of people actually got shot to death and/or blown to pieces, instead of settling disputes by exchanging harsh words on Tw@tter and f*ckwitBook.

If there's ever a WW3, god help us with the brigade of wimps defending our country.
