Two Farmers and a Lancaster 3 (DVD 025)
This is the continuing story of Fred and Harold Panton's Lancaster NX611, formerly called 'Just Jane The Story Continues'. NX611 has become something of a legend and this video captures all the events and achievements spanning six years.
Her acting debut in a BBC wartime drama is featured along with her historic tail-up taxi. She is re-united with the real Jane, the former model of the Daily Mirror's wartime comic strip, who christens her namesake. East Kirkby airfield turns back the clock with a simulated German night-time bombing raid, complete with explosions, search lights, anti-aircraft fire and air-raid sirens.
Fred meets the remaining survivor of Chris Panton's Halifax crew and German night fighter pilots, who shot down Lancasters in the war, visit the museum. A rescued Lancaster engine returns home after more than 50 years and a flying replica of Just Jane lifts off from East Kirkby's runway - a thrilling testament to the hopes of thousands of NX611 enthusiasts.
