Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

...The UK's last flying Lancaster bomber - The City of Lincoln - is currently playing host to the worlds only other flying Lancaster - Canada's  - 'Vera' . A really unique opportunity to see the pair fly together.  I've just spent this evening watching the pair flying around RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire together with a Spitfire and Hurricane escort.  A fantastic sight and the sound of 10 Merlin engines overhead is amazing! Sorry for the poor quality - I only had my little camcorder and the battery was dying.

The worlds only 2 flying Lancaster bombers

Always liked the old war birds.  Just not the war part.  Thanks for posting.
