Went to mt. Hope Saturday and had a good look at what they have been up as i had not been there of the last three weeks.
As i thought , all was well and everyone has been doing great work even without my help
I asked about the lysander and it will never fly again due to a bent air frame ..... But it will be restored as a static display.
I talked to three or four of the guys who work on the lancaster and the winter matinance should be all done in about three weeks.
The lancaster survived last summers flying season very well.
I only took pictures of the lancaster but hey it is their premier plane .

Some food for thought here: http://www.2worldwar2.com/mosquito.htm

The Westland Whirlwind was another plane that was too good for some peoples liking: four 20mm cannon in the nose when the Spitfire and the Hurricane had nothing but .303 brownings. Apparently rigid minds didn't like twin engine single seat fighters, no matter how good they were, and Supermarine and Dehavilland probably weren't too keen on it either! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westla...lwind_(fighter)

We can usually hear it coming because we are not far west of the airport. They often do their test flights over this way. I never tire of seeing and hearing the Lanc. Thanks for the updates Chuck.
