On the road to Scampton

If you are not, like me, lucky enough to have a ticket for the Dambusters 70th anniversary Sunset Ceremony taking place at RAF Scampton at 7pm tonight, then you can watch it live on BBC2 in a special programme being introduced by Dan Snow.
The Lancaster flypast at the Derwent Dam took place earlier today in what looks to have been very pleasant wether conditions. Let’s hope it continues for another few hours!
