"Dan O" - the Sunday Sport of aviation...  ;)
Haha, the Daily Sport and Sunday Sport, they had some great headlines! Wasn't there a Liberator crashed on the moon once, then a London Double Decker bus got transported to the North Pole... :o

Lancaster and it was 2nd Edition !! 1st edition was the Double Decker at the North Pole

Are you sure about that?
It's still there as far as I know,  as is G-BWGL, which arrived just over a week earlier ( both are at HAS for maintenance )
Granted I may have missed it, but I haven't heard it working St Athan or Cardiff since it arrived - the only ex-Mil that have done air-tests then departed recently are JPs & L-29s
SWAG also hasn't reported it as having departed.

I might've misread the info I was passed and for that I apologise ..

Should anybody pop in, whilst staying at my daugher's in Cinderford, yesterday Monday, 1400 hours, heard a fairly low jet engine, and emerging from the clouds was a Hawker Hunter, was I pleased?

Apparently, according to Funtera, it belonged to the Dutch Hawker Hunter Foundation, registration G-KAXF. It came in from Holland but I couldn't find where it landed.
St Athan, was there for 2 days and went home

from BBMF Website ..
A routine inspection has highlighted a fault with one of the Merlin engines in a Hurricane aircraft. We are currently investigating the fault and as a precaution, flying of Merlin engine powered aircraft has been paused. We are still operating Griffon & Gypsy powered aircraft, including Spitfires and Chipmunks. We realise the disappointment this will be to our many supporters, however safety remains our paramount concern
