Lancaster NX611 Return to flight?

Number 2 fuel tank overhaul

We have removed number 2 fuel tank from the port side of NX611 to be sent away for overhaul to an airworthy condition.  Retro Track and Air have the contract to overhaul our tanks and we will be proceeding to remove and cycle them through overhaul.                                                              

Number 2 fuel tank removed and ready for collection.

Upon paint strip, clean and inspection by Retro the tank is deemed to be in excellent condition with only very minor weld repairs required.

Photos below taken by Retro see the tank in its current condition awaiting the minor welds.
