    Welcome to the site. I am sure someone here can help. Lanc surely can as soon as he gets his ass back onto the site.

    Did you know that on this day in 1942 (March 3rd), this was the first combat operation for the newly deployed Lanc?

    Hi blue halloween.

    My great uncle and second cousin (who's 83), flew in Avro Lancasters in the Pathfinder Force in WW2, and AJ-K, ED934G, was flown by P/O V.W. Byers, a Canadian.

    Dunno. But I suspect he is pissed. Look at the last time he has posted. About a month ago. THAT is NOT like Lanc. Either we ran him off or he is just testing us. I wouldn't put it past Lanc to do the latter either. I will be very sorry if he is gone.

    I sent him a few emails. I wish CC would give him a call or something. I think they live in the same town or something.

    I PMd CC about a week or two ago. CC runs into Lanc on campus every now and then. He said he would ask next time he sees him. I'm hoping he has just been too busy with his Westland helicopter apprenticeship.
