The aircraft nightstopped on its way to an airshow in Northern Ireland. It did a circuit and flyby after takeoff, much to the delight of all the assembled photogs and families with children. This would have been a common sight and sound 60 years ago as Prestwick was the eastern end of the delivery route for Canadian built Lancasters.

Four Spitfires flying in very close formation. Excellent angle showing the Lanc at its' best. Detail and clarity outstanding. Wish I had been there to see and hear it.

Great shot. I saw this fly past us when on our UK Ireland tour at the Giants footsteps the same day. Alas it was too far away to photograph. Thanks for sharing. Colin
