2 minutes ago the Lancaster flew directly over my house at just a few hundred feet.

What a fantastic sight and the sound was incredible.

Gonna have to go find an airshow now http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It happens to me at every Farnborough air show few times over with the spit and hurri in formation, the thing I love is the smell!

It is a great aircraft. I wish we had it in IL-2 with those Grand Slams http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yeah, happened to me a few years ago it was in formation with the memorial flight partners - messrs spit and hurri, sounded fantastic, thought it was the usual police chopper going over till the sound just got louder and louder and the 'whole shack shimmied', awesome http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Saw it last year in Manchester on Veteran's Day. I was stuck in a dull meeting at the top of some high rise hotel and it flew past us at about the same height. All the men in suits (myself included) stopped what we were discussing and dashed to the window for a better look. It's an awesome sight!

I used to live on top of a hill in Aldershot, great place to be when the're around! I couldn't believe how low they were flying.

An Apache Helicopter flew very low over me yesterday as I was near Matlock, Derbyshire.

An Apache would be cool, I get those twin rotor jobbies (Chinooks ?) all the time.
It's a bit of a pain when there are 3 or 4 of them, stuff falls of shelves and my place feels like it's gonna rattle off down the hill.

It is always a great experience when one of these large birds flies over like that.
I assume that you didn't have time to grab a camera.

@Xiolablu
The Apache is a very comforting thing when you have a pair following you around in case things get a little dicey http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

It baffles me why it never made it into the plane-set. What a great bomber!

I work near an army base and a private airfield that is home to a few classic warbirds, so I see Chinooks, Lynx regularly and on monday I saw 2 Mustangs overhead http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
