During August I must Keep a Good camera to hand

Our "Local" sometimes spit and sawdust, at others a refined winebar. Entertainment is in your hands too - Poledancers? Lunchtime Strippers? Chippendales? String Quartet? Sky Sports?

During August I must Keep a Good camera to hand

OK I intend at some point to go to conningsby and take some photos on the ground, but the chance of seeing 2 Lancasters Airborne at the same time is thrilling to me. yes I know that many older people will remember huge gaggles of them but personally I feel (and fear ) this is the one and only chance many of us will ever get to see 2 of theses magnificent craft in the air together

One of my great aerial days was a charter flight from Staverton to Duxford in a DC3 to watch the air show.

I Suppose for me living in bomber county makes it more personal, also I have a strange family connection to the Dambusters.
