A Clip of Video from the RAF

The RAF has just released this video taken from the Lancaster during the flypast to mark the Diamond Jubilee.

Note that the pilot and passengers in the Lancaster, are wearing very 1940s bone-domes.  It would also appear, that there are quite a few free-loaders going along for the ride.

The RAF should make more videos like this.

  1. The Magnificent RAF Fly-pass . . . with the distinctive sound of the Rolls Royce Merlins . . .

    This was a fitting end for the Commonwealth of Nations {British Commonwealth} . . . which is one of the Greatest legacies of the Queen. Because of mass migration in Oz, only a third of the people have links back to an Anglo heritage. However, Aussies, Migrants and even Republicans are proud of the Commonwealth. The Queen & the Commonwealth of Nations are still important for the future, bringing a multitude of peoples enjoying themselves.

    The other feature of the Diamond Jublilee, was the British Pageantary. . . Historic, Colourful and a great start for London this summer, followed by the Olympics.

    • Concerning the Commonwealth, A few years ago, I ended up staying in the same hotel as the Commonwealth Parliamentary Speakers Conference in Port of Spain in Trinidad. In the buffet breakfast queue, I was standard next to the Speaker from Mozambique. I said to him, that I hadn’t realised that Mozambique were part of the Commonwelth. He said they had just joined because when you asked for assistance, the Commonwealth sent a real expert, who knew how to sort out ports and build roads without any strings. Other organisations, like the US and the UN, just used aid as a means of selling their products. With the Commonwealth you got real help.
