I never knew!

Seems the war in Europe went on longer than I realised, according to a CBC news report on the Newly acquired Lancaster at Trenton and the restored Halifax already there!

"And oddly enough — and to Colton's amazement — KB 882 and the Halifax bomber have crossed paths before.

On the night of May 30, 1945, the Halifax bomber took off from the Tarrant Rushton airfield in southwest England for a mission over Germany.

The same night, the Lancaster bomber departed from its home base in England on one of its 12 missions of the war, Colton said."
