LANCASTER BOMBER FLYPAST SCHEDULED FOR YEOVIL SHOW 2017
THE YEOVIL SHOW 2017 is to be honoured with a flypast by one of the two remaining airworthy Lancaster Bombers left in the world.
The Royal Air Force Events Team has notified the organisers that the Flypast will take place on the second day of the two day show – Sunday 16th July. Precise timings will be confirmed closer to the show dates.
Last year’s Yeovil Show, which returned to the Yeovil Showground after an absence of some fifty years, was promised a Lancaster Bomber Flypast though the historic aircraft was pronounced out of action at the last minute and replaced with a Spitfire.
Sam Mackenzie Green, the Event Director said:- ‘The Spitfire was absolutely amazing, thrilling the crowds as it dipped and dived over the Showground but we know that many Bomber fans were disappointed by the last minute cancellation. So it is with great excitement, that we received notification from the RAF Events Team this week that the Bomber is not only back in action, but that they have selected our Show as the one in Somerset to attend.’
The Yeovil Show takes place over the weekend of July 15th and 16th.
