Magnificent!

Its a bit of a pity that neither the Halifax or the Stirling get much attention, although the Stirling did see service as a glider tug. Somewhere we have a picture of my pop-in-law who was a para, in a group shot with part of an aircraft in the background, which may be a Stirling. I'll have to have a look for it, although my bro-in-law may have it.

I've seen footage of the Buccaneer doing similar stuff and raising a wake of spray behind it - there again, the Buccaneer was a superb low level aircraft.

That's Gen. Sherman, I think, so I call B/S as he only had A-10's on call.
