    Hi,

    Found this photo in my local newspaper for more than a month ago.

    Bill .Thanks .Depending on weather, I suppose .

    Finn. I think the Lancaster & Spitfire flew together earlier in the summer -- the Lancaster not being able to fly in May.

    Was at Rochester Airport for the flypast today, however, due to poor flying conditions along the route, the arrival time was delayed for almost 2 hours, but, at just before three the Spitfire and Hurricane came in over the Southern boundary and proceeded to do two circuits of the airport at about 500 feet, before flying off to Gravesend, well worth the wait.
