MILITARY AVIATION BUFFS will soon be reliving last summer’s twin Lancaster bomber tour on the big screen, thanks to a team of Canadian documentary film-makers.
Reunion of Giants, shot by Dundas, Ontario’s Suddenly SeeMore Productions, details the once-in-a-lifetime get-together of the world’s last airworthy Lancs. The 88-minute feature is expected to screen on Remembrance Day (Nov. 11) at Cineplex Entertainment movie houses nationwide. Admission will be free.
Footage for the film was captured as the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum’s famous Lancaster made an epic four-day trans-Atlantic journey to the U.K. The cameras were rolling as the restored four-engine bomber paired-up with the only other airworthy Lanc remaining, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight model dubbed “Thumper”. Once together, the two planes delighted crowds by flying formation at a number of U.K. air shows.
“Two legendary bombers, separated by time and distance, met in Bomber County to fly together, this time in peace,” said an announcement by Suddenly SeeMore Productions. “These marvels of mechanical engineering are part of a proud lineage credited with bringing an end to World War Two.”
