Operation Lancaster (DVD 024)
Part two in the series of Two Farmers and a Lancaster. Farming brothers Fred and Harold Panton are the unlikely owners of a Lancaster bomber. On their wartime airfield in East Kirkby, now the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, the bothers have lovingly restored 'Just Jane' with the ambition to see her fly again. For 23 years, Lancaster NX-611 has remained silent, but one by one her mightly Merlin Engines have roared again.
Follow the continuing story on video, from the moment her first engine burst into life to the day she taxied again on all four! Witness the occasion as Lancaster PA474 'City of Lincoln' salutes her sister aircraft with a low flypast, and the sound of eight Merlins reveberating around the airfield.
This is a fascinating story of human endeavour and mechanical splendour that will delight all Lancaster lovers.
