    Ron Jenkins of Calgary, Alberta, is probably the only guy in history to have purchased the Lancaster he flew during the war.
    Here he tells in his own words how it came about. Click on the Wartime Wednesdays link below to read the whole story.

    A fun read Elinor. The title made me smile and I just had to read the article. As usual, it made we wish I had your connections and knowledge.

    There is a similar story attached to Just Jane, bought by two brothers of an airman lost in a Lancaster in WW2. http://www.lincsaviation.co.uk/history/.

    Thank you, I remember the story about Just Jane, bought by two brothers of the airman. It's also a good story. I'm going to put a link in my blog so other people can read it, too.
