View Full Version : Lancaster in YYC

The Aero Space Museum in Calgary has what appears to be a well cocooned Lancaster outside under grey material of some type. Anyone know what the plans are for this aircraft?

Hopefully a long-overdue restoration ;)

It will never fly again of course, but a bit of TLC is needed anyway. It has become decidedly tatty over the years outside in the wonderful Calgary climate :yuk:

I think it's actually owned by the City (used to be on a pole) and only loaned to the museum which may account for the inattention. Mark X(MR), by the way, FM136.
