Lancaster B.1 up close and personal by 


The Lancaster is probably one of the most famous bombers of the 1940s. Here the late Sqn Ldr “Jacko” Jackson brings the BBMF Lancaster PA474 close in behind the Hercules camera ship.

    this proves my previous question of you being up in the sky shooting also! always a better perspective than being stuck on the ground and looking up at the belly! Outstanding image!!

  • Thanks FT! The Lanc itself was a great camera ship – steady as a rock with no noticeable vibration. I was lucky enough to have several trips in her.
