    Default Light Aircraft over Liverpool

    A good few years ago, I remember looking out of the back window and seeing 5 light aircraft fly past - no one would believe me at all especially when I said they were all in a line and it looked rather amazing!

    Only got a quick shot:

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Saw no banners. One was a biplane the rest were single wing, none looked or sounded like ww2 planes.
