Lincs Aviation Heritage Centre update on 2nd September 2014-
After assessing the situation, and with consideration to safety and time constraints due to their many commitments during the tour, the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum have decided to proceed with replacing the #4 engine on Vera. Work will begin in the morning at Durham Tees Valley Airport. Their intention is to meet their obligations for the event with the 3 Lancasters at East Kirkby on Tuesday. The Lincs Aviation Heritage Centre has offered CWH a zero timed engine from their stores and manpower from their engineering team. RAF BBMF have also offered a Merlin 500 engine from their stock.
The Lincs Aviation Heritage Centre are progressing with preparations for the events as normal with every expectation that the 3 Lancaster event will go ahead.
