How cool would that be!!!
Link not working for me right now, but will be interesting to see.
My father who died in 1945 was an engine fitter at RAF Hullavington in Wiltshire and worked on Lancasters. I am moved to see the dedication of the brothers to get the Lanc to its present condition. Good luck to them.
Can't we start a subscription to helpthem with cash becuase I doubt it will be cheap to get a CofA?
I'm up for contributing toward the C of A
of an operational Lancaster owned by a wWWII air museum. I was told it was one of many that took part in the dam buster missions. It was also The Lanc that flew over the recent Royal Wedding. I beleive the nose art was a Grim Reaper. What an honor. I'm glad I did this at an older age as I certainly appreciate the importance and history even more. Robert
