Update 485. Lancaster PA474 flies over the Severn Valley, 02/07/11

It was the SVR 1940s Weekend and a fly-past was expected over the Railway. Finding a suitable spot with the sun behind me, I waited for a ‘plane to appear. Originally, three ‘planes were listed as appearing, but on the day there was only the one, but it did fly over twice.

In previous years with the smaller ‘planes, they seemed to be gone within seconds, but the Lancaster seemed to be flying much slower and it was easier to photograph. Unfortunately, much of the underside of the ‘plane is in shadow, but I am pleased with the photos.
