WTF might have been more appropriate. Just stepped out into garden and thought a helicopter was about to crash or try and land in park. Heard it go round again and then saw a very low flying second world war plane--bomber. Scared the proverbial.. Presume there must be a show on somewhere. Looked a bit small for a Lancaster but that sort of shape

Bugger---just came over again above the back garden--couldn't get camera out fast enough as it circled and went back to southport. Must have dropped its payload over Birkenhead!
