    As the BBMF and the Red Arrows have overflown Buck House on numerous occasions, I think the single engine excuse is a little flawed.....
     
  3. Didn't want to upset any Argentinians living in London? Afterall, a vote is a vote.

    The Nazi's had numerous attempt's at hitting the Palace during the war, after countless attempt's they wing'd it. Jack or the Crabs haven't a hope in hell of hitting it in a one off attempt. All is safe.
     
  5. Didn't London allow a WWII bomber (Heinkel? )to fly overhead a couple of years ago?

    Wonder how Berlin would like a Lancaster to do the same .. probably not ..

    Berlin Airlift commemoration?
     
  7. Delighted that the Stringbag will be there; such an unsung type in WWII. It would also be nice if the Sea Fury joined the fun.

  8. Don't let John Beattie near the Sea Fury!!! He'll only destroy another one!!!!!!!!

    'Nazis' indeed. WTF? The Kriegsmarine wasn't exactly manned 100% by goose stepping Übermensch party members.

    The brotherhood of the sea means sailors are more sympathetic to the plight of enemy sailors than pongos and crabs are to their distressed opposite numbers, usually. 'Nazis' my arrse.

    But I'm pleased that the Bismarck was sunk.
     
  11. Johnnie Walker the U-boat killer might have disagreed with you on that one.
     
  12. Weather has stopped the flypast
