3 Lancasters 02 09 2014 UPDATE

 Canadian Warplane Heritage release an update on Lancaster FM213's condition.

Canadian Warplane Heritage-

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support and understanding as we continue our engine repairs. A special thanks is extended to both Andrew Panton and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight who immediately offered us loaner engines! Our plan is to remove the No. 4 engine today. For logistical reasons, we will be installing the BBMF engine which is is expected to arrive in Durham Tees later today. Assistance with the conversion is also being provided by Retro Track & Air (UK) Ltd. We are putting forth a maximum effort to make the SOLD OUT event of 3 Lancs on Tuesday at East Kirkby.

Even with the use of a loaner engine, we have incurred significant costs to swap out the engine plus facilitate the repairs to our engine, which will need to be ready for the end of September for our return to Canada. Donations to HELP KEEP THE LANCASTER FLYING can be made here: http://www.warplane.com/about-cwhm/donate/donationsform.aspx.
