If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
no matter how close or far apart you may be.
A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
Well, actually the first segment was the shot from the Lanc's bomb aimer position followed by the shot from the Spitfire and then finally, the segment that was taken from the Lanc's tail gunner position.Originally Posted by britchick, post: 281737
Remarkable though in any event.
Thanks for posting it.

Most of the Lanc's were black on the bottom and camouflaged on top. However, there were others in squadron service that were various colors.Originally Posted by Watchinherskip, post: 281763
Probably the most famous Lanc's of all were the ones attached to 617 Squadron. The "Dam Busters". These conformed to the black on bottom, camo on top color scheme.

That was something right? The 8th air force bombed by day and the Lancs rolling at night. My Dad was on B24 and B29s in the war. Never went to the European theater though. He was going to ship out with the B24 crew but was selected to be trained for the new B 29s and flew missions of sub patrol off the west coast.
Not awesome.Originally Posted by britchick, post: 281782
That would be beyond awesome!
I got to crawl around inside a B-17 once and was flabbergasted at how small a WW-II heavy bomber was in comparison to today's aircraft.
Tom (... amazing...)
Oh... cool!Originally Posted by Slowhand, post: 281850
Do we have to start calling you Johnnie Johnson now?
Tom (... yes, Squadron Leader!)
