They had a vintage day at the cricket club just up the road from us, Yorkshire Air Ambulance landed so you could have a nose around. THEN! a Lancaster did a few circles, sounded awesome... video is from the back of my house. It was a while ago but just remember this forum had a place for this sort of thing.

Hope you guys enjoy!

That was brilliant, one of the most innovative air displays I've seen in years.

Can you do that sort of thing in the UK? Or would the CAA just laugh at you?

It was very original in 1983 - when I first saw Charly Zimmerman carry out such manoeuvers in the Bolkow Bo105.

The Canberra/B-57 was notoriously difficult to handle if one engine failed.

The interesting thing is that the pilot in the clip seemed to handle it OK up until the landing but then tried to go around.
