PSA/reminder: Dambusters flypast tomorrow (Thursday) Peaks/Ladybower
Love the lancaster. Been ‘bombed’ in the garden over the last couple of years – there is an old Lancaster airfield nearby.
The noise it makes is amazing. Was a little bit nervous with the photos above. We think they saw us in the garden and then flew down the line of houses.Posted 4 years ago
That area was full of helicopters and TV and other stuff last time. The advantage of being up on the side is you can see them coming.
Ah you’re right, it was tickets only last time. I Think a few were offered to locals like the vicar.
I did think the middle of Ladybower dam would make a good spot apart from the fact that it only goes over once.Posted 4 years agorobhenry85Member

Parked near the Snake Inn & hitched a lift.
Very moving & very inspiring.
My dad’s old stamping ground, so visited a few of his favourite places.
Was going to pop into the Rising Sun in Bamford for a pint and a late lunch, but no chance with that traffic.
Should have taken the bike!Posted 4 years agodavetraveSubscriber
Got to the top of WLT about 12ish and decided, after a quick scout, to drop down the hill a bit to the wall above the woods. I was the fell runner who then decided it was a good idea to take the direct line back up WLT at the end – parked on Mortimer Road above Cutthroat Bridge at 1100, ran over Foulstone and along the edge to WLT, then back to the car via Moscar. ‘Fraid my photos are a bit rubbish, was only using a compact.
Nevermind bikes for beating the rush, even more mobile on foot – no problems with aggro ramblers getting in the way…!
BTW the missus was giving me updates on progress from the Ops Room – the Lancaster nearly didn’t get off the ground… 😯Posted 4 years ago
