Avro Lancaster NX611 winter restoration work 2022

07 November 2022

The work to be completed on NX611 this winter....

Well 2022 has gone very quickly!
The Centre is almost back to normal and we have seen some great new additions to the hangar this autumn.

The plan for this winter is as follows-

- All 4 engine servicing

- Completion of the rear fuselage of KB976.

- Rear fuselage of Lancaster KB976 swap with the rear fuselage of NX611

- Continued restoration of the port wing of NX664 WU-21 to swap with the port wing of NX611.

All of this work is estimated to cost in the region of £250,000.00 over the 6 month period.

If you would like weekly reports on the restoration work during that period please sign up to the Rivet Club HERE

If you would like to support the project with a donation we would be very grateful and it can be given HERE

We hope to be able to provide winter restoration tours as we have over the last 4 years and the dates should appear online shortly HERE.
