    Must have been the Battle of Britain memorial one - used to be called the "City Of Lincoln" but i think they've renamed it "Phantom Of The Ruhr"

    Note to myself...must get out more.

    we had a spitfire dive bombing the airfield yesterday... not literally, but you know what I mean ..

    not many planes make me stop and look ( having to work on them takes the magic away ), but the WW2 stuff is an excellent noise / sight as you say

    Yep - I've seen a Merlin running on a bench and it does take your breath away

    Kept thinking if there was a way of shoe-horning it into my mk3 cav i had at the time,don't think the gearbox would have taken it though

    It's the Sunderland air show - hence all the nice planes flying about. As I'm up in the NE at the moment, seen all sorts flying over, including the Lancaster.
