Fascinating feature But a very sad ending.

Even damaged those airframe components would have provided valuable evidence for the painting of Lancasters inside and out. But the warbird restoration/rebuild community never seem to think of that or to demonstrate best practice in analysing and recording that evidence before it is destroyed.

The B-24 will always be a favorite of mine. That being stated , one still must appreciate the Lancaster and respect her accomplishments of WWII .

Thanks for sharing the pictures are great . This made my day !

I can understand that back in the 80's, but is that still the case today? I would have thought with he $$$ being spent on a restoration, markings, stencils and colours would all be taken into account?

I remember seeing her and the rest of the Strathallan collection in the late 1970's (possibly '77 or '78). They all still lived outside at the time and I was amazed by the size of the collection.

Kermit Weeks had got to be one the best warbird conservation advocates out there. He had a Facebook page and was recently showing off his Lancaster bits.
