Although over 7,700 Avro Lancaster 4 engine heavy bombers were built during WW2, there are ONLY two in the world that still FLY.
One belongs to the RAF's "Battle of Britain " flight and as far as I know, the public are NOT allowed to fly in it, for any price.
The ONLY other flying Lancaster belongs to the Canadian War Plane Heritage Museum located near Hamilton, Ontario. This is the largest WW2 flying museum in Canada, and they do FLY the planes, over 25 of them.
The Mynarski Memorial Lancaster is flown many times each summer. This year (2008 ) it will fly 22 times, from May 22nd to November 11th.
YOU can get to FLY in it. Yes a full one hour ride in one of ony two of them still in the air. It is not cheap, but it is UNIQUE.
If you would like more information about a flight in a bit of "flying history " or one of the other " war birds " at the Canadian War Plane Heritage Museum, go here.

For our American friends, Hamilton, Ontario is LESS than one hour from Buffalo , New York, and three hours from Detroit , Michigan. Even if you don't want to fly with us, come and be amazed at a air museum that actually restores and FLIES WW2 aircraft , of all types.
Questions ? Ask me here.

What would you pay to fly in a Lancaster ?
