Competition – see Lancaster NX611 Just Jane’s restoration

The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre (LAHC) at East Kirkby has announced plans for work costing £250,000 on Lancaster NX611, ‘Just Jane’, during the 2016-17 winter period, which will be a massive step in its bid to return the aircraft to the skies. LAHC’s Andrew Panton says, “This is the biggest news for Lancaster NX611’s restoration in the last 20 years. The goal of ‘Just Jane’ becoming only the third airworthy Lancaster in the world feels closer than ever before”.

Warrant Officer Ken Cranefield DFC flew ‘Daks’ with 233 Sqn during 1944.
