    dear RAF personnel,

    Tomorrow the BBMF Lancaster is due to make a 75th anniversary flight from Scampton, over Ladybower, Derwent valley, Chatsworth then onto Rolls Royce factory.

    I’m planning to finish work to try and see it near Lady-bower. It’s due over midday Ish.

    I can’t find the web page that shows flight paths so that I can try and catch it en route if I’m a bit late.

    Any ideas please?

    Thanks :)

    Cheers folks,

    I’ve seen BBMF site and now joined FB page.

    However, the other year there was a fly past due over a fete down the road. One chap there to watch had a website which showed the actual flight path so that we could see which direction the planes would come from.

    It was like their route for the day on a map.

    Sadly they didn’t get as far as Sheffield as mechanical problems meant they had to cut short the planned route :(.

    I thought if I was late to get to proper car parks etc I could stop on route to see it. :)

    I’m hoping today’s flipping change in weather won’t have stopped it!
  12. nope!

    It will be a shame if they do, lots will be out to see her!
  13. Just look up it be in the sky :gnome:
