I dropped into Duxford this afternoon and discovered that the RAF were preparing the Lancaster for it's first test flight after a complete rebuild, it has been at Duxford all winter having a major overhaul. Along with a collection of other aviation enthusiasts I spent the whole afternoon waiting for the first flight. The number three engine was giving them some trouble. Having fixed the problem, the first flight was rescheduled for 18:30, Duxford shuts at 18:00 & it looked like we would have to leave but in the end the management took pity on us and let us wait. It was well worth the time.
I messed this shot up I had started to put my camera away and had reset my speed far too high so I ended up with frozen props.
