Hi guys,

 

As some of you may have seen, the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum's Avro Lancaster arrived in England on Friday to begin its one-off tour of the UK, during which time it'll be flying in formation with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight's Lancaster at up to 50 locations.

 

Thought the photos of the arrival, and accompanying words, in the attached link might be of interest to some! Anyone here planning on visiting the UK to catch the two in the air together?!

Crawled thru this very aircraft at Oshkosh in 2009 and it would be the same Lanc flight from Ontario, Canada to UK on which the Preservation Society auctioned a non-participating crewseat on ebay a couple of months back with a winning bid somewhere in the order of $75,000. I didn't bid.....being a pensioner is full of deprivations! Riley

Sadly just got back from the UK, so missed it! 051_crying.gif.fe5d15edcc60afab3cc76b2638e7acf3.gif
