Moments in a minor key

Dalton Airfield as portrade with my lens, the HDR SET can be viewed here, I've used Photomatix Pro to do the edits plus a little tidying up in Photoshop, obviously I've added the Lancaster, wish I'd read up on some history first as this base flew Armstrong Whitworths, not to worry, the plane was probably overkill anyway!
Short History from Wikipedia follows

RAF Dalton, Hambleton was home to No. 102 Squadron beginning in November 1941. No. 102 Squadron returned to Topcliffe in June 1942 and for a time Dalton hosted No. 1652 Heavy Conversion Unit (HCU) flying Halifaxes. The airfield was improved in 1942 and in early 1943 was allocated to No. 6 Group Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF). Canadian squadrons stationed here at one time or another included No. 428 SquadronNo. 424 SquadronNo. 420 Squadron, and No. 1666 Heavy Conversion Unit (which moved to RAF Wombleton in October 1943). The station also housed no. 1691 Bomber Gunnery Flight (BGF) RCAF and its successor, No. 1695 Bomber Defence Training Flight (BDTF) RCAF, the last RCAF unit to serve at this station.
