Photo Comment

Victory Aircraft Ltd delivered this Lancaster to the RCAF on August 21, 1946. Withdrawn from service and placed on display at Goderich June 14, 1964 it was officially struck off strength at the end of that month. The Lanc was acquired by the Canadian Warplane Heritage in 1977 and in one of the great feats of historical aircraft preservation, airlifted the bomber by helicopter to it's base at Hamilton in 1979 to restore it to flying condition over the next nine years.
