    Fuddy Duddy is visiting good 'ole Buffalo this weekend. I'll be heading out to see her on Saturday but took a sneak-peek on Friday to get some photos while there was a light crowd.

    Enjoy...

    I saw that one back in April. Some of the old gear is not in it because it was used post-war as a transport. The lower half of the top turret and the gantry mount for the ball turret are missing. But as a transport, Ike flew in it after the war and MacArthur flew in it in the 1950s. So it is really pretty historic. Enjoy it, I know I did!

    Ah, a show-off eh? :rolleyes:

    ;)

    The only Lanc "down the road" from me is a static post-war Mk.10MR bolted to concrete slabs. :(
    But it's still kinda cool.

    Ok, now I know you're a dick. :rolleyes:
    (kidding ;) )

    Actually, I envy the hell outta you if you get to see those things every week or so. How often does the Lanc fly these days, anyway?

    in the winter not so often but in the other 8 months i would say an average of once a week usually at about 2000 ft and about 4 laps around now with the 109 spit and hurri within a 10 minute drive it makes sitting outside sipping a beer a pleasant thing

    Lucky! :mad: The only aviation we get at my house is a few Helo's, and maybe once a month or so we'll get some F-18's or suchlike fly over. Better than nothing.... :rolleyes:

    The only military birds I see around here on a regular basis are Sea King helicopters, and the occasional Aurora MPA. Whoopy. Once in a blue moon I'll see some CF-18's.

    When I lived in Tattershall, when my dad was stationed in RAF Coningsby, all I had near me was the BoB-MF. Is that something special? :laughing6:

    And when RAF Finningley was still open we got everything in for the airshows. :laughing6:
