I've just seen this on the BBC website. Two brothers in Lincolnshire have bought an Avro Lancaster bomber and are planning to get it into the air again (this would make just 2 in the UK including the one flown by the BBMF. I believe that there is also another airworthy Lancaster in Canada). They already have clearance to taxi it around the airfield were it is kept, offering rides to enthusiasts. They have now bought new engines and plan to get it into the air as soon as they can. Brilliant!
