    Hey all, this may sound odd coming from me, but does anyone have any pics of Avro 683 Lancasters Type 464 Provisioning (dumbusting lancs to you boys and girls) or the upkeep mine? failing that any 617 lancs will do nicely, thanks in advance!

    Did you know that Gibson's G-George (ED932/G) was still extant in 1947 until some kind Civil Serpent ordered it destroyed under the 'reduce to produce' programme!

    I do hope he sleeps well at night.........the git!
