    Haven't seen anything posted as yet. Any one in England this August will be treated to a once in a lifetime event. Both flying Lancaster's in the world, together. There will be several air displays in the UK with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight's Lancaster and fighters along with the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum Lancaster Canada will be flying in the skies together. After a 4 day flight from Hamilton to Coningsby, the Canadian Lancaster will be performing at Middleton St.George and East Kirkby as well as other events that are still being planned. Some information can be obtained from Lancaster Bomber 2014 UK Tour only for the month of August.
    Lucky devils in the UK, wish I was there!!!

    Should be great. I do hope that England reciprocates and sends the BBMF Lanc to Canada for a similar tour. That way, we could see 2 Lancs and 2 Mossies in one formation. Now wouldn't that be something!

    Any date for the Middleton St George (AKA Durham Tees Valley) show? It should land there after all it was Mynarskis airfield.

    It's a couple of weeks since I checked the BBMF web site - at that time, no firm dates had been announced, just that the planning and training work-up would take place when the Canadian Lanc arrives.
    I would guess that the M. St G. appearance will be for the Teesside air show, but could b wrong.
    I'm hoping they'll both land at East Kirkby, so that all three Lancs can be seen, and heard, with engines running.
    I'm already drooling at the thought of it .......

    Sure will be. It looks like it's going to East Kirkby, and hopefully the BBMF Lanc as well, so I'll be checking regularly to find out when etc.
    If they land at EK, rather than just a 'fly past', and can taxy with the 'Just Jane' Lanc, that'll be fantastic !
    Oh, and if they do, it'll be three different Marks - Mk1, MkX and MkVII - and I don't know if that's ever happened before !

    Thanks for that Chris. They all appear to be 'fly past' events, and all in the 'south' too (OK, south and east.) I'm still checking the BBMF site regularly, and hoping there's an event where they both land. If not, I'll have to get my Rs down to Coningsby I guess !

    Hi Terry, I can't wait to hear the two flying together. I'm probably going to head south (from the midlands) to the Shoreham show and visit the wings museum while I'm down there. Will also update if I find any more info.

    Cheers Chris

    I think it is a shame bordering on a disgrace that the Canadian lanc isn't coming to Northern England, that is where most Canadians were based. I would rather go to Canada to see it than South England

    Hiya Terry, I have it on good authority that the two Airworthy Lancs will be doing a flypast at East Kirby to coincide with a fast ground run of the third. Photographers will be strategically placed so as to capture the impression that the East Kirby Lanc is taking off.
    The Canadian Lanc, when it arrives, still has to be checked for a display and airworthiness certificate. The Canadian Lanc will then be able to do some civvie passenger flights...unfortunately all places have been taken though. Hope this helps.

    Thanks very much for the info Nobby. It's not showing on the EK web-site yet, so I'd better keep monitoring it, as they normally limit access to 4,000 bods on show days.
    So, Red Two, it's either EK or Little Gransden air show - or both !!!

    You are very welcome gentlemen...it's something I'd like to do too. I'll ask my source for some more info, but as another little 'taster', but you probably know this already...the East Kirby Lanc is definitely going to be a flyer. Don't know when yet, but when I asked about the grass runway length I was told it would be no problem, just shrubs to cut down and I think a farmer to sweet talk. I'll definitely give you everything I can find out as soon as I know.

    Regards,
    Graham
