I’ve only just caught up with this article in the Canadian Hamilton Spectator which appeared back in September. On the twentieth anniversary of its restoration, it tells the story of how one of the only two airworthy Lancasters in the world was saved from the scrapheap and brought back into flying condition.
Some splendid video footage and fascinating interviews. The newspaper’s main site also has video footage of the Remembrance Day service held at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Centre.
Spiffing what ?
This really is something – flying the aircraft over …Brilliant !
Why don’t they approach HRH The Prince Charles , Prince of Wales honoured by HM The Queen as Head of Air Force , Army and Navy and ask him to have arranged some very special celebratory dinners and events for the guys coming over from Canada ?
They made such a massive contribution in all areas to the final Victory in WW ll !
