Avro Lancaster flying over Largs

The sound of four Rolls Royce Merlin engines is not often heard over Scotland nowadays, but one of two remaining airworthy Lancasters flew over the seaside town of Largs as part of their annual Viking Festival.

The aircraft had been due to take part in other events over the weekend but technical issues and bad weather had delayed her departure from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire.

The WW2 bomber gave a special salute to local resident Duncan Currie who had been a navigator in the heavy bomber during the war. The promenade was crowded as locals and visitors watched the iconic aircraft provide a wonderful display.
