Two Lancasters over London
In this imagined scene I have positioned Thumper and Vera over London, the capital of the UK. In the summer of 2014 the only two remaining airworthy Avro Lancasters - normally separated by the Atlantic Ocean - flew together for the first time. The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum's Mynarski Memorial Lancaster FM213, flying in the markings of KB726 VR-A of RCAF No 419 (Moose) Squadron, crossed the pond to join the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight's Lancaster PA474, in the colours of DV385 KC-A, "Thumper Mk III" of 617 ('Dambuster') Squadron.
