Fly alongside one of two Lancaster Bomber planes left flying in the world

The Lancaster Bomber plane - 69 feet long with a wingspan of 102 feet

by 10 June 2014

Whether historian or war buff, you will have definitely heard of the Lancaster Bomber planes; the British aircrafts that took on the German forces in World War II and the most recognisable planes during that time.

Now only two of these magnificent aircraft are left flying in the world today and aviation enthusiasts are being offered a once in a lifetime chance to fly alongside this historical plane.

Thanks to the support of the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, Kent-based Action Station is selling seats on board four Piper Chieftain Planes, which will fly within 'waving distance' of the historic Lancaster - which has a length of over 69 feet and a wingspan of 102 feet, this will be a sight to remember.

Each seat is selling for 2,150 pounds or approximately 3,613 dollars.

Ticket holders will be greeted at Humberside Airport by Actions Stations staff and given a small summary of the itinerary before boarding the observer aircraft. Once in the air, the flight will be joined by the Lancaster flying 'within waving distance of the crew.' Ticket holders will also be allowed to photograph the Lancaster in as much detail as necessary during the flight.

Post landing ticket holders will have the opportunity to meet the pilot and take part in a brief Q & A session with him before taking turns to have their picture taken alongside the Lancaster.

However, acquiring a seat aboard the Piper Chieftain will require following certain rules: you must weigh less than 90 kilograms (about 198 lbs) and be able to walk for 50 metres unaided.

Tickets will be sold on a first come first serve basis. Flights will take place across 5 days: 18th, 19th, 20th, 26th and 27th of August.
