As many of our readers will be well aware, Avro Lancaster B.VII NX611 Just Jane is under restoration to airworthy condition with the Lincoln Aviation Heritage Center at former RAF East Kirkby in Lincolnshire, England. While the group has made magnificent progress, even during the pandemic, the recent lockdown for much of the UK has presented significant challenges. Nevertheless, they are indeed moving forwards, and we thought that our readers might like to see a recent report, reproduced here with permission.

There are three P-38 Lightnings under rebuild at the HARS Aviation Museum - Albion Park, Australia and we thought our readers would be interested to see our friend John Parker’s report on recent progress since his last visit in November.
