CWH Lancaster Update

The Canadian Warplane Heritage's Lancaster flew for the first time in 2009 yesterday after corrosion was found in the aircraft's propellers. Thankfully the Museum was able to raise the funds necessary to buy new propellers and Canada's only flying Lancaster is back in the air. Here are a few photos of the Lancaster all pulled apart in April when Heather and I visited the CWH.






In other CWH news, after years of being Grumpy the CWH's B-25 Mitchell is once again "Hot Gen."

Cool photos. When will the Halifax in Canada be restored?
