REUNION OF GIANTS returns to the big screen on the 5th Anniversary of the trip for one day only - quite appropriately on Remembrance Day. Following the screening, there will be a Q&A with the pilots, crew and the producer of the documentary. There will also be a draw for a flight in the Lancaster(at each screening)!
It had been 50 years since two Avro Lancaster bombers flew side by side. In 2014, the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum's Avro Lancaster, VeRA, flew from Hamilton, Ontario to meet her British counterpart, Thumper—the only other surviving airworthy Lancaster bomber in the world—the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight's (BBMF) Lancaster in England.
REUNION OF GIANTS documents this historic mission as it unfolds, through the eyes of the flight crews, veterans, friends and family—all part of the bombers’ history, including this new chapter as VeRA crosses the Atlantic.
