SHOREHAM finally saw the world’s last two flying Lancaster Bombers together in the sky on Sunday.

The Canadian Lancaster had been due to fly with the Lancaster from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at this year’s Shoreham Airshow, but it was pulled out due to engine problems.

Yesterday, however, the two planes flew together over the Shoreham Airport at 2pm.

Witnessing the flight, Matt Davies said: “They flew over from the west of Shoreham Airport, banked over head and flew north. The noise and sight of the two planes was incredible.”

His father had heard from a friend that the pair would be passing overhead, en route from Goodwood Revival.

Mr Davies said: “My family headed over to the river opposite the Red Loin pub. Exactly at 2pm, as we were told, they flew over. Not sure if many will see this again in the future.”
