  1. BBMF Lancaster will be doing 2x flypasts along Ladybower Res and Chatsworth Estate tomorrow at 12:05pm. The weather is looking a bit overcast with spots of rain but i've seen it flying in worse.

      70 years ago they were also fortunate to have a few hundred spare aircraft available, with only 2 left flying in the world in 2018 it wouldn't be advisable to have a incident with either one of them just because they felt like they were committed to fly despite the weather not being safe. Also I think it's Coningsby they fly out from has just one runway and it's the crosswind component being the main factor in regards to what happens tomorrow.

      Not looking good with the maximum cross wind for the Lancaster at, I think, 15 knots

      Weather factors cancelled the Lancaster, a Eurofighter did a fast-run along Ladybower just past 12:30 despite one of the BBMF pilots tweeting early this this too was also cancelled, a lot of people came from far and wide (some waiting over 6 hours) for this and they are understandably a bit peeved off by it all. I'm more fortunate living just 20mins drive away, but in the end I didn't bother going down and ending up in the traffic jams just to see a Eurofighter flying past. Heard it from here though.
