Hi Pete, really taken off in the last week, always hoped their was someone out there related to members of his crew, lo and behold two turn up at once. Hope to post a photo later.

Hope all is well with you, watch this space!!

Hi Pete and thanks for the refresh!!

Found two last year as you will have seen, a third proved unsuccessful but still plugging away.

A few shows booked to see the two Lancasters over the next few weeks, the Canadian Lanc arrives on Friday in the UK.
Only thing we cant arrange is the weather, but heres hoping!

Good to hear from you,

Steve.

As a kid I lived in Canada - about 1981 my Dad and I did a roadtrip type journey - Zicremember driving into this tiny one-horse railroad settlement and seeing that Lanc on display, prior to renovation.   Real surprise in the middle of nowhere!
