I had to put a comment after you linked this.
Now I want to get myself Sywell bound to get on this top side action.

I'm afraid Sywell is now a sell out, so advance tickets only. No tickets are available on the gate. No doubt due to a certain Canadian visitors inclusion. Thankfully I predicted this and bought early. Same with Little Gransden the following weekend.

But if you get the chance in the future definitely, it's a fantastic venue, wonderful airshow and is all in aid of the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance. The show is every two years though so you are going to have to wait I'm afraid.

it warms the heart of a British plane fan to see the old British lass flying, her and the Spit and without a doubt two of our country's most famous daughters and much loved by us, i saw a documentary where two old bombers lads saw a rebuilt Halifax which had been raised from a Norwegian lake and rebuilt, they said their planes werent built or created, they were BORN, and were happy to see a Halifax be reborn.

I agree, i think planes like the Lancaster, Spit, Halifax, Vulcan, Hunter etc arent CREATED they are BORN, if we rebuild them we give them a second chance at life!

That's a fantastic shot of a beautiful aircraft!

Any idea how Lincolnshire is making out getting theirs airborne?

They are currently gathering parts ans spares ready for the start of full restoration to flight. I do not know how long it will be until they start but the believe that when reatoration work does start it will take 18 months from start to finish to get her airborne. Of course they will also have to extend the runway at East Kirkby too to operate her so who knows. Restorations are always notorious for being almost impossible to predict timescales accurately so we are going to have to wait and see I'm afraid.
