Brothers Fred and Harold Panton, of Spilsby, own an Avro Lancaster bomber NX611 and are planning to get it flying again after 37 years on the ground. Called 'Just Jane', the Second World War bomber is kept at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre in East Kirkby. It will become the third airworthy Lancaster in the world and the second in Lincolnshire. Out of 7,377 Lancasters built in the 1940s, PA474 - which makes up part of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at RAF Coningsby and another in Canada are the only remaining airworthy Lancasters. Fred Panton (77) said that after acquiring Just Jane in 1983 and painstakingly restoring her so that she can taxi around the East Kirkby airfield, getting her into the air again is their next challenge. Mr Panton said that after further consultations with engineers, they would make a decision next month whether to go ahead with the plan. "It will then take us 12 to 14 months to go through getting all the systems checked," he said. Just Jane still has all four working Merlin engines but does not have a flight safety certificate.
