    There are only three Lancasters in the world that are not stationary in a museum:

    The BBMF Mk.III PA474, the Canadian Mk.X FM213, and NX611 "Just Jane", the Lancaster shown here.

    This virtual tour has been created for the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre in East Kirkby. There are three panoramas from the outside, eight of the inside, from the bomb aimer to the rear gunner, and a high resolution panorama of the Memorial Chapel.

    Almost all details are labelled, many explained, just move the mouse cursor over an item of interest.

    Click here open the panorama, and switch to full screen mode!

    There will ne small updates in the near future, mainly static photos being added that pop up, together with an explanation, when the mouse cursor is moved over an item of interest.
    The latest addition is a view of the drift recorder periscope - the little "thingy" sticking out, in the front view (as seen above), on the starboard side between the bomb bay and the canopy.

    If you are interested in future aircraft panoramas, please sign up to my mailing list!

    A bit more about the panorama can be found here.

    Next to come are a Tiger Moth. If you can think of an aircraft that could benefit from such work, please let me know!

    Great link! Thanks for Posting.

    There is arguably a 4th mobile Lancaster, FM159 in Nanton, Alberta. Currently under full restoration, though not to flying condition, all 4 engines as well as the hydraulics and pneumatics are operable. The plane can taxi, though there is no space at its current location to do so.
