FM104 in the news

AviationPosted by Peter Smith Fri, April 13, 2018 23:25:09

Lancaster FM104, which was displayed on a plinth in Toronto for many years, has been making headlines. After coming down from its mounting the aircraft was partly restored and has latterly been in storage but difficulties finding somewhere suitable for continued restoration and display resulted in a suggestion that it be transferred to the British Columbia Aviation Museum for restoration. The museum have suggested that the aircraft could be restored to flight. However several groups in Toronto have objected, wanting the Lanc to stay local. A final decision has now been delayed until July.

I followed the restoration on WIX. At one point I thought I read they gave the rudders to BBMF in exchange for "used" ones.

Send it to 'The Aircraft Restoration Company' and let 'JR' and his fab team rip it apart and make it 'beautiful', and then that way, we won't have to wait for 'JJ' and the will we fly it or not saga. Do not send it to Old Warden though please.................
