Re: Pic of the Day

It's hard to believe that not to many years ago what you now see in the photo wasn't there, one hell of a job.

Re: What have forum members been up to?

A friend sent me this yesterday so see what you all think! Beyond facebook. Presently, I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook whilst still applying the same principles.

Re: restore or leave this as it is

Not many MK2 Lancs were build so any surviving parts are well worth restoring, especially with a known history, my late grandfather flew 51 ops in Lancs and not of those op's was in a MK2, he also flew in a number of planes shifting them far and wide and again, never a mk2.

Re: The Barracuda Project

Well done Bill for a great brilliant discussion, I think this is going to turn out to be another "data plate" build rather than any attempt at an actual restoration which is a terrible shame knowing that you already had it in hand to be as near as damn it all Barra, please correct me if I am wrong b...

Re: The Barracuda Project

Wow, that's a shame after all the work you have put in to it, I hope the FAAM are going to refund the public the donation's they sent in for the rebuild now it's all come to an end.
