Thanks for the link!

Its great that the numbers of live Lancasters have grown over the past couple of decades, and with more being restored the future is good.

Aha - found that but didn't look around enough ... found it now ... just south of Calgary :D

I was just wondering how far away it was from the Canadian flying Lanc C-GVRA - but that's near Toronto by the great lakes - so it seems they are a fair way apart ;)

Nice - but not a 'runner' as the other 4 ;)
