A unique historic event took place on Sunday 21st of September 2014, when the only two airworthy Lancaster bombers in the world flew together over Derwent Dam in the Peak District. Thousands of people turned out to see the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s “Thumper III” and the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum’s “Vera” fly together over the dams where 617 Squadron practised 71 years earlier for the famous Dambusters raid.
This is a composite image from the day showing both Lancasters. It is available (without the watermark, of course) as a borderless 16″x12″ print which has been printed on Fuji Crystal Archive Paper (guaranteed against fading).
Prints cost £40.00 each (including postage within the UK).
