    She's looking grand. Now all that needs to be done is to restore her to the air and she would be perfect

    Agreed, although that will cost another pile of money to then fly and maintain her, but it would be great to see. Especially in formation with the flying Lanc that is over in Canada.

    Cool, would be great to see. Isn't there also a restored Halifax in the UK? If so could someone post a pic please.

    It's at the Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington, it's made up of bits of other Halifaxes and a large part of a Hastings. It's in the colours of "Friday the 13th" My pics are at home but I'm sure there's a website somewhere.

    I wonder if that gunner was given his Thermos back - 60 odd years of tepid coffee must have been tough!

    True,
    but also a flying wellington, Hampden, Whitley Battle for the bombers.

    and a Typhoon Tempest to complete the set.

    We have a Beaufort on it's way to airworthy condition in Oz, can't wait for that!

    "wellington,"

    There is a restored wellington, but the important thing is; who is going to fly them! You will need both aircrew and ground crew as well.
