Currently over Scotland.

Anyone know the callsign for the BBMF one on Flight Radar.

The moment they meet up over the North Sea will be special.

There is a 50 min delay, they are due to meet up at Hibaldstow just north east of Kirton Lyndsey.
BBMF T/O now scheduled for 13.45 local but it will be a race with the weather


Just stared to rain here 7miles from Coningsby

I don't know but I believe that's the normal one. I haven't seen any reference to the call sign for today

I think she was calling Heritage 1.
Great to see her down safely and looking forward to her exploits over the next few weeks.

I think the Canadian call sign was Memorial 1. I heard her but didn't see her. I didn't have enough time see what her routing was on Flightradar 24 after the flypast was canx to get out and about.

Get over today for 1pm if you can Pam:

from the canadian lanc's FB page:
Last night our Lancaster flew a familiarization flight with a few BBMF crew on board. We were joined by the BBMF Hurricane for a few passes. Today's flights will be with the two Lancasters, the first one scheduled for 1 pm
