Yeah the lanc... you would think it's real!

Wondered how long before someone said photoshopped. I don’t suggest it’s vintage, probably an anniversary flyby event in the city. Still looks great.
The Lancaster shot is real, I suspect, and perhaps taken from an angle that makes it seem even more spectacular than it is. The photo below (Spitfire and Hurricane) was a photo from the same Battle of Britain Memorial flypast.
I think the affect can be gotten by the way the camera lens is set.

This is another great set of pictures Rob ! I was looking for something similar to the one you posted of the Hs-129 a while ago during the Kasserine Pass GB. If you don't mind I'm going to store that one for future use.
The Lancaster photo is spectacular !
Thanks my friend

Pedro L. Rocha said on August 20, 2018
All good photos and most new to me! I especially like the hellcat mislanding on that pocket carrier, the dog over the Hanomag and dragon painted on the Fokker ( me thinks it’s a Fokker D.VII).
The Henschel 129 is familiar, after all I want to build the one second plan in that photo

Second from centre. Officer: 'why does he not salute?' Looks at NCO's saluting hand, with paper note, as if to say, 'Well, get rid of that, and salute!'

Hi. Came across this page from an image search.
FYI the Lancaster photo at Liverpool is real and was taken at the Mersey River festival in 2004 with a long lens from a distance. https://www.flickr.com/photos/ricardcooper/3557215855/in/photolist-4ygoCu-6qkEkR
