Ton up Lancs

Recommended Posts

Found this book in 'The Works' for £6  - a bargain I thought , not that building a Lancaster is in my current plans, maybe its because they make me feel old, its now 41 years since I got a guided tour of 'CIty of Lincoln' at the 1976 Farnborough Airshow - 2 hrs before the Memorial flight did their display - Health and Safety was not an issue back then, my mum was allowed to sit in the Arrows Red 10 ( the backup plane ) which had an armed ejection seat , the pilot was showing her all the Gnats controls etc , his senior ground crewman was having kittens, those were the days !!

 

Back to the book - interesting stories and some good close ups of the 4 engined workhorse, a nice little addition to my book collection.

Haha walking through a local town market with my good lady - I spotted a stall selling 'toys' - there was a medium size Red Box that I was drawn too ... after a little haggling I now have plans to build this wonderful workhorse ( the stash is growing !! )
