**UPDATE** Information has been added to the web site outlining details for viewing the BBMF Lancaster at the EE138 crash site in Stadil and on ground at the Billund Airport:

On the 30th March 2011 the BBMF confirmed the Danish Lancaster fly past and further updated their web site with the 2011 display information for April and May 2011, this information includes a downloadable spreadsheet. Please click here to visit the BBMF web site: http://www.raf.mod.uk/bbmf/displayinfo/

The 2011 BBMF Danish application was managed by RAF Sgt Mark Frisby the Assistant to the British Defence Attaché in Copenhagen, with the support of the 5 member Denmark Team.

In a recent email, Sgt Frisby’s advice to the relatives and friends of EE138 and the Stadil community is “I am delighted to confirm that the bid to get the BBMF Lancaster to overfly Jutland has been successful….the bid is very similar to last year with the addition of a fly through of Esbjerg on 06 May 2011”.

The local Stadil Vedersoe community has published information concerning the 2011 BBMF fly past on its website:

http://www.stadil-vedersoe.dk/pages/visnyhed.asp?newsguid=71387

The Ringkøbing Skjern Daily Newspaper has also published an article on the 2011 BBMF fly past on their website:

Of interest is that a bid application was submitted to the BBMF for a 2011 fly past of 460 Squadron Lancaster EE132 AR-G2, which was also lost on the Berlin Operation of 3/4 September 1943. EE132 crashed in Holland, and like the Stadil E138 site and other Danish crash sites, has never been visited and saluted by the BBMF Lancaster. The Commanding Officer of the newly reformed RAAF 460 Squadron provided support for this application, and hopes to provide an RAAF 460 Squadron representative at both the EE138 and EE132 fly past sites on the 4th and 5th May 2011. Relatives of FO Forrester from Lancaster EE138 provided assistance and support to R. Spence relative of Lancaster EE132 submitting the Holland bid, and we are pleased to advise that the Holland Lopik BBMF fly past has been approved and ratified. Read here for details of the 2011 EE132 Holland bid.

2011 DANISH BBMF FLY PAST ROUTE in detail (amended on 9/4/11):

The following series of 3 maps outline the proposed flight path of the BBMF Lancaster PA474 across Denmark. These maps have been kindly prepared by a relative of EE138 navigator Warrant Officer Carthew.

Accompanying the maps, is a table of flight path details showing the scheduled time for the low level fly past over some sites, the site name and latitude and longitude. These details have been provided by RAF Sgt Mark Frisby from the 2011 BBMF Danish bid application. ALL TIMES ARE LOCAL DANISH TIME.

After several discussions with BBMF, the bid for the Lancaster fly past over Fyn and Jylland on 05/06 May 2011 has been amended. Unfortunately the original bid was a little ambitious and would have taken the crew beyond their permitted flying hours/fuel allowance. Thus the bid has been amended as per the following schedule. Fortunately the key sites will still be flown over at low level (500 ft) and the crew will still fly over Esbjerg on 06 May 11. The times have also been brought forward due to the crew being required to attend another air show on 06 May 11. Sgt Frisby has apologised for any changes people may have to make to planned programs but he has been assured that the crew will do their very best to stick to the amended program (subject to weather conditions and aircraft serviceability).

The first map shows the route of the BBMF Lancaster entering Denmark on the 5th of May 2011 from the first fly past site at the Drejø Kirke through to the crash site at Randbol later that day:
