    Man I hear that Danny. I can't tell you how many times I have seen the Lanc here in Canada fly...right over my house...and I go running outside, and stand there gawking then when it is too far away, I think...Man, I should get the camera, which would be less that 30 FEET away..and i never did

    Guess what...there's the whole kit-and kaboodle. Spitfires, trainers..and of course the Lanc.
    I got to walk under it. Made me have a new respect for ground crew in those days, since the damn landing gear wheel was taller than I can reach. They would turn a slow mechanic into a tire chalk pretty damn quick..and I bet the Lanc crew wouldn't even feel the bump.
