The FW is a very nice looking aircraft. Like a classic Mercedes.

Here's a shot from Hamilton with the Lanc starting up #1. I love that aircraft!

As best as I can quickly find, there are a six, two of which are in Everett, WA. One is an A-5 model, the other a D-13 though that one isn't flown because of its rarity.

I'm also proud to say I've seen an Il-2 Sturmovik fly as well. The only thing was wasn't original was the engine. It was replaced by a left-turning Allison off a P-38.

Oh yes. And not a thing to be ashamed of either.

And that's a great Lanc pic Eyebrock.

Thanks mate! Apparently the open bomb bay doors are "Avro air-conditioning full on". Gotta love that bomber crew humour.
