    As promised boys, here is VeRA wearing her summer clothes. I arrived 90 minutes before the doors opened and just as they were towing her out. Glad I took my ladder along to get over the top of the fence.The cowling was off of No.1 engine and the top half of the Merlin was off but covered with a tarp. She was outside for about 15 minutes and they pushed her back in and tucked the port side into a spot where getting pics of her new scheme would be impossible. They are scheduled to be at the Quinte Air Show all next week with VeRA and no doubt they wanted her outside today but next week is going to be a monster show and she is a big part of it.

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    Great pics Jeff. It doesn't seem like two years ago that she was over here with PA474.
    BTW, that second pic is very useful, showing the oil tank hatch open, with the stenciling.

    I like that they are doing some make-up to represent famous aircraft of the RCAF every now and then. Wonder what's up with the #1 engine.

    Is that the engine that went 'sick' in the UK, and replaced by one borrowed from the BBMF ?

    I don't think so. IIRC it was no.4 that went wonky while in the U.K.

    Is the nose art on both sides, or only on the port side? I'm doing an RC Lanc of LO, and would like to get it right.
