Reg code is G-BDZA
What kind of aircraft is this? Looked like a glider, but it was powered.

Spotted Lancaster Bomber in distance from my garden, following the A16 bypass. Too far away for a photo on my small camera :( :(. Maybe the only sight and sound I have of her, and the BBMF, this year :( :(.

The Tucano display pilot (and another chap that mum thinks had a Navy flight suit on but I didn't see) stood in front of me in the queue for KFC in the Peterborough services on the A1 last night :))

And Red 10 said hello to me as he walked past to do his commentary at Duxford :D \:D/

It was indeed there yesterday mate. Lovely day so we took the kids to Cleethorpes. I was going to take some shots of the Forts and spotted something moving. Seems it was headed right for us :D I think I may have taken a few pics of the kids at some point too :))

I believe there has been flare trials at Donna Nook for the last couple of weeks perhaps something to do with that.

The lady is of course correct. A shame they were so far away from Cleethorpes for my 150mm lens :((

Don't know whether it should be posted, but I heard a Spitfire go over my house at about 19:15.
No idea which one it was.
May see one on Saturday if it flies over Spalding on its way from Pinchbeck to Horefield.
