BBMF Lanc Engine Fire

Have just seen that the Lanc had a no4 engine fire but landed safely, hope it's not too bad.

Glad everyone appears ok and well done all in what could have been a nasty accident.

VX275, no hard and fast rules, it depends on how she is handling.

Usually, it's not an issue once well above Vmca2 where you have plenty of bernoullis over the ailerons;just make sure you don't bank too far!

Just bring No1 to idle to match No4 then there are no issues

Glad all ok.

I have to say though....awesome picture, I suspect it's a good few years since a Lanc has flown over Lincs with one donk smoking and prop feathered?

I hope it's easily fixable but yes. Something strangely evocative in the pictures.

(To a ground based layman with zero perception of what was going on in the cockpit. )

Does anybody else know if PA474 has ever had a similar incident whilst flying with BBMF?
No doubt the team will be working hard to ensure the beautiful old girl returns to the skies in good order.

IIRC Jack Currie did a 2 engined over shoot (port both dead, I think), with a load of incendaries onboard in a rain storm, @ West Malling. I believe he then landed off a port turn , having lost faith in the 'turning away' from the dead engine principle. I haven't read Lancaster Target for a while, so apologies if I am not correct.

She was to have a busy few days too. At least she is at her home base this time. I believe she spent a couple of weeks in Jersey when a Merlin failed several years ago.

Judging by this sequence she had just took off so was probably in the circuit, images show the result.

BBMF incident this afternoon.
