Gone But Not Forgotten

That may explain the 21st century Yorkshire sightings, as the photos do match a Herc, but the 20th century reports from Derbyshire (on Dr. Clarke's other blog, above) seem to describe a Lancaster or a Liberator, with the distinctive twin tail fins.
What's interesting is that the more recent Derbyshire sightings, described in my post above, #57, do seem to describe a Lanc/liberator pattern, and one of the witnesses mentioned (George Furnace) has the experience to discriminate between a Lancaster and a Liberator.
I'd love to go up there and mooch around with my camera, but I'm too old now for hill-walking...
I pass the baton on...
