It looks like you dropped on the same nice weather I did. I still think September can be one of the best months in the Lakes. Great photos.
Thanks Marc. You are right. With the children back to school it is quieter and the weather was great.
A splendid trip – and what excellent photographs. Any idea what the aircraft was?
Hi John, thanks for your kind words. It was perfect weather! I think it was a Dakota.
Looking at the proportion of the wings and four engines it looks like a B29 Superfortress..
I will bow to your superior knowledge!
Third photo down on the site below shows it I think:
I thought a Superfortress too, the Dakota was two-engined.
I’m very jealous Mark….just kidding, well maybe a little. A Catalina flying boat flew over the campsite at Braithwaite last week. That was great, but a B29 would have been amazing.
I am not sure I realised the significance😄
Stunning images, fantastic weather in the circumstances of a disappointing summer
Your very kind Andy. It was a great trip
