    It's always been my dream to fly in one of those CWH aircraft. Are you a sponsor or are you lucky enough to "know someone"?

    Excellent! That Lanc ride looks like it was fun.

    Was the B25 as loud in the air as they say it was?

    Great videos, thanks for sharing.

    One very odd thing about it though, they started the #4 engine first. Certainly during wartime and the other Lancasters with running engines start #3 first (it powers a generator, pneumatics and the main services hydraulics on all marks). Did they say anything about that? Not noticed it before. All #4 powers is an alternator if 'Special Duties' radios are fitted and the mid-upper turret hydraulics- I know which I'd rather have running first!
