Quotes

A Met Office spokesman said: "With lighter winds and some prolonged sunshine, it will feel warmer than recently with a maximum temperature of 19C."
..."That," said Dunc Mason "is precisely what the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight is all about, remembering those people and ensuring that their extraordinary story is passed on to new generations."
Mr Ramsey told the BBC: "I don't think that there is much doubt that this will be my favourite ever day in aviation. One of the Lancasters involved in the flypast operates from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire, while the other is based in Canada."
"It's something you will ever only see once, and the Vulcan too" he said
