Not a lot to say about this really, it's a picture we just took as a Spitfire, a Lancaster and a Hurricane flew over Stamford.

Loved it. Don't know what the Birds were thinking though!


  1. Great stuff Shalini! What was the event that prompted this fly-past?

    I think I am correct in saying that there is only one Spitfire still flying. If so, this was it.

  2. Thanks Mark :-) It was awesome, If I had known in advance they were coming would have been ready with the camera and taken more. They are expected again on 3rd July, this time we will be prepared.

    It was the Stamford Festival yesterday and I am sure it was part of that. It was also the first Armed Forces Day yesterday but I don't think this was for that.

    As far as I am aware there are 6 spitfires still flying but may need to check on that.

  3. hehehe maybe the birds thought the 3s are just another giant birds enjoying flying with them...

  4. Either that or they had a serious death wish that morning :-)

  5. Those are beautiful photos. By the way i love the layout of your site. very user friendly. Cheers and happy blogging!

  6. Thanks celticmusicfan! That is a really nice comment coming from an expert blogger like you :-)
