And while at the museum I got to work on the lancaster and get in the lanc while they run up the engines.
It was fun to just be there and listen to those 4 vee 12 merlins running.

I was at the museum today and I was talking to one of the guys that works there and he said the lysander and the bolingbroke will not fly.
That is due to the fact that the lysander and bolly have the same Bristol engines and they are known to seize con. Rods to the crankshaft.
The bolly will be doing taxi runs but no flight.
The lysander might get repaired to static display only.
