    It comes over Northampton maybe 4 or 5 times a year m8 but I guess that's because we're not to far from Duxford and the like.

    It really is a site to behold. The funny thing is that when I saw it fly, I wasn't that interested in WWII airplanes. I only snapped off a couple of pictures. Now I wish I had taken more.

    Good links fellas. Lanc I've seen that fly-past one before, and it's a decent one. :cool:
    Nothing would beat seeing the old girl in person though.

    I never, ever thought I'd admit this to myself, but sometimes I wish I lived in Ontario. :rolleyes:
    Scroll about halfway down the page to see a small video of the Canadian Lanc doing a fly-past with Ed Russell's privately owned Spit Mk. IX. The video ain't the best quality, but it's enough to make me wanna cry.

    God, I wanna see that big bird in the air! :confused:
