The BBMF Lancaster PA474 took to the skies again for the first time this year, on Thursday 6th June, for its post-winter-maintenance air test.

The big bomber’s return to the skies had been somewhat delayed by a number of engineering issues, reported in detail to Official Club members in previous newsletters. However, all of those issues have been resolved and the BBMF is delighted to have its pride and joy back where it belongs, in the air.
