Disappointment as Lancaster is pulled out of show

First published in News

THE LAST two working Lancaster bombers were set to have an emotional reunion in front of the last generation of RAF men to fly them.

But sadly The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum has had to pull its Lancaster out of the show due to engine difficulties.

The museum reported yesterday that during a flight from Durham Tees Valley Airport it performed a precautionary engine shutdown.

It landed safely without incident and is now hangared undergoing maintenance but cannot attend any weekend events.

The other working Lancaster is still set to appear at the show.

"Really? Vot voz his job?" she asked.
When I told her he was a Lancaster Bomber pilot she went mental

There is only one show in town this weekend - unless you live in a cave.

Bournemouth and Shoreham airshows are on the same weekend and they tend to share aircraft. Shoreham airshow is a good day out, by the way, (if you like aircraft).

I just found out that somebody is trying to rename Shoreham as Brighton City airport! Hah!

It's been Brighton City Airport for several years.

It is written on the front of the main building.

Shouldn't it now be called Brighton and Hove City Airport? Whatever it has been renamed as, I'm sure local people will continue to refer to it as Shoreham Airport, just as Brighton residents ignore the the current owners' renaming of Palace Pier.

Haha I like that: "Shoreham Airshow is a good day out (if you like aircraft)"
Very perceptive; I think there might be a clue in the word 'airshow' which would probably put off those who don't like aircraft.....

Precautionary engine shutdown on a 75yr old aircraft of that size doesn't sound that great to me. I can't imagine that they glide terribly well.

We went to see the American Aeroplanes staging dogfights over the airfield....There were gasps of "Ooh" and "Aah" as the crowds watched on in amazement. Near miss after near miss had some people covering their eyes and shaking their heads in disbelief..........

It was a good half hour's worth of entertainment, but in the end, my wife finally managed to park the car and we made our way to the Air show.


I never really understood what irony was.
Until I saw a female Ambulance driver.

Shouldn't you be wasting your Dungarees...?

Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.
Teach a Feminist to fish and she will accuse you of patronising her, claim she knew how to do it anyway and that even if she didn't, she could easily work it out without the help of a man....

PROVEN FACT! There are no good looking feminists!

How can you tell if a woman is a Feminist?
If the boring clothes, lack of makeup, lacklustre body and plain looks, greasy hair or angry demeanour don't give it away, she'll tell you within 2 mins....

How come every time I tell a joke to a Feminist, she happens to be on her period?

What's the difference between a feminist and a lesbian...
Feminists make rubbish ****.


My daughter asked me to get her a T shirt with "This is what a feminist looks like" on the front, but they don't do it in anything smaller than XXXXL

Watched the Vulcan's slim profile slowly appear from the west and then begin its acrobatics, swooping over the Downs. So impressive, and to think that such an amazing aircraft first flew 60 years ago and was conceived when the propeller reigned. Brute force will elegance!

Nice touch hugging the coast and banking over Brighton.
