Question East Kirkby Just Jane Lancaster

Morning All

When Just Jane NX611 Lancaster eventually gets back into the air, Will they be doing airshows around the UK or will it just be local flying, will they also be have passengers paying for flights to help in the upkeep of the aircraft and running costs?

I fear those questions may turn out to be academic ...

Though I hope not.

I think the idea of paying passengers is a complete no-no. The chances of getting any permission/certification from the CAA would be virtually non-existent.

The Canadian example took passengers when it was here.

I would imagine after the Vera inflight fire and BBMF one, which was more serious, the CAA will impose some pretty harsh safety requirements.

Just buy a cheap flight to Canada and then a more expensive one in VERA.
Vintage Aircraft Flight Purchase Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum

About 2000. Cheap at half the price!

Bonus if you’re a Canadian tax-payer - you get a charitable tax deduction.

When did Vera have an inflight fire? Only know about the engine change in the UK.

Very pretty.

But there's a world of difference between a pristine static display/ground running specimen and an airworthy article.

I hope Just Jane makes the transition, but I'm not holding my breath.

So Canadian regulations may allow it in a Canadian registered aircraft but highly unlikely ever to happen under UK regulation.

VERA wasn't an engine fire, from what I saw the supercharger blades disintegrated and went through the engine, along with quite a bit of oil thus the smoke.

US regulations seem much more relaxed. I flew in a Huey (no doors) and a DC3 at last years TICO Warbird show and flights in a Cobra were on offer. Have heard of B29 and B17 rides.

Great fun and we know we are taking an increased risk. Why are the CAA so much more conservative?

UK CAA, aka, "Campaign Against Aviation"
IIRC, The Air Navigation Order, (The Law), has a section that starts with the words: "AN AIRCRAFT SHALL NOT FLY ", and then lists all the conditions that have to be met to allow it to fly.

Yes, Fifi is coming to an airport near me and offering rides on two days. Collings Foundation gives rides in their B-17, B-24, B-25, and TF-51D. Vera has been in the US offering rides - that one I would do if Vera came to my area.

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Just Jane on the circuit?

Pure speculation, the principal purpose of getting JJ airborne is as a memorial to their brother. Money raised from taxy runs has been toward that aim and mutual support with the museum.

Unlike PA374 , JJ is the major exhibit at the museum. Any tour away from base would have a negative effect on the museum. In comparison with the Vulcan, fuel costs will be minimal at 200 gal per hour, but then of course slower transit speeds would n reflected in cost per mile.
