Any more news on this yet? Guessing its quite a bit more than an engine change.

Lancaster update
Good evening here is a a brief post about the progress on the repairs after the problem with the number four engine. As you can appreciate I cannot give you all the details but it is not simply an engine change. There is fire damage to the nacelle panels, engine bearer and associated systems. All this will take time to assess, repair or replace. We hope to have her flying again this year but at this moment we can not say when. Paul B
Hope this is what you were after Garry.

At about 12 noon today, over Spalding, was a 2 engine jet (refuelling) followed by a 4 engine jet followed by 2 x F15s. They were heading North or North East.  No idea of big jet types.

Were they actually together or just followed on ?
The 2 F15s were flying side by side, and following the 2 big jets.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance landed just near me to deal with a 2 vehicle RTA. Air Ambulance was not needed. Photos of the aircraft taken with permission of a police officer. Stood 30 metres from the aircraft when it took off.  It bowed to us before leaving.

Spotted Lancaster Bomber in distance from my garden, following the A16 bypass at about 1300.
Too far away for a photo on my small camera :(  :( .
Maybe the only sight and sound I have of her, and the BBMF, this year :(  :(.
