May 2024 BBMF calendar photo

Official Club calendar 2024 – May photo

During 2024 we are presenting the image from the Club calendar in the newsletter for that month, with some details about the picture, including when and where the photo was taken. This month we feature the stunning night-time image which we used for May, showing BBMF Lancaster PA474 at Southend Airport, which was taken by Club member Matt Stride in August 2022, whilst the BBMF was operating from Southend for the Eastbourne Air Show that year.
