Lancaster Bombers: Thumper & Vera Takeoff
YouTube / Jim Ramsay
Great Footage, What a Sound!
In this video, we get to see two Lancaster bombers – Thumper and Vera, take off. According to YouTuber Jim Ramsay, the Vera came from Canada to rendezvous with Thumper from RAF Conningsby to perform at the Scottish International Airshow 2014 at Ayr.
Both planes landed at Prestwick Airport, taking on fuel, and then leaving for home. I have to say, we got goosebumps simply hearing the sound of those engines. There’s no finer sound in the aviation world than seeing all four Merlin engines take off in close harmony.
It was great to see both of these bombers taking off!
