Lancaster NX611 Return to flight?

Number 3 fuel tanks returned

We have received two of the latest three fuel tanks that we sent to Retro Track and Air for overhaul to an airworthy condition.

Both of the tanks are the number 3 tanks which sit outboard of the outboard engines and hold 114 gallons each.

In 2005 we let BBMF have a number 3 fuel tank as they had one rupture and in return they have agreed to pay for the overhaul of one of our number 3 tanks for NX611.

Therefore the overhaul costs for these two tanks are £7,252.20.
