- Second Avro Lancaster – yahoo!
Forgot to mention, hope those of you who like these sort of planes are coming to Duxford for their Flying Legends airshows.
Last year they had 20 some planes in the air at the same time as the finale, the sound was amazing. (you can actually re produce this sound by riding with Conti Barons on tarmac, i learned this at Christmas lol )Posted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

I like how this one engine (and all its variants) was used in soooo many different planes.
The meteor engine (simplified and naturally aspirated but the same overall design) cropped up in a load of tanks as well, and, er, a Rover SD-1 😆

Didn’t know until I saw the BBC report that this is the one and the same Lancaster that used to be at Blackpool Squires Gate years and years ago. I remember as a small boy looking round and clambering aboard it with my dear departed dad.
Indeed it is. Me and my also-dear-departed Dad were lucky enough to have a mooch around while it was here too – if memory serves, we just wandered into Westair’s clubhouse as it was parked nearest to their hangar, Dad played the “former Lancaster aircrew” card, and one of the instructors took us over, simple as that!Posted 5 years agostucolMember
Kermit Weeks at Fantasy of Flight has the majority of KB976 Lanc B10 stored in containers. She was very badly damaged in a hanger collapse and it’s going to be a long time till she is rebuilt.Posted 5 years ago
I e-mailed them a few year back and there was no plan for a time to even start work.
I worked on her at Strathallan in the early 80’s before Sir William Roberts sold off the collection (still have the catalogue).
Had e-mail conversations with a RCAF Nav (Ivan Ransome)who flew in her in the Canadian Artic, he said she got them home a couple of times on 1 engine !piedi di formaggioSubscriber
