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!

One would have to ask, what is it doing in your neck of the woods, Fish ?
