A chance to tour an Lancaster bomber

Windsor's Lancaster bomber was on the move this weekend to Devoshire Mall, where it will remain for two weeks. The bomber will be open for public tours in exchange for a donation to the restoration fund.

FM211 has been on display outdoors in Jackson Park, Windsor for the last 41 years. Over the years the ravages of weather have not been kind. The bomber was in danger of being lost if something was not done. After the mall display the bomber will be towed to Windsor Airport where it will undergo a complete restoration to taxiing status (although it will not fly again) .

If you're in Windsor during the next two weeks, stop in and admire a piece of our heritage.

Tours: Daily from 9am to 8pm.
Donation requested.

I'd fix the title, but it would break the link. Early morning finger problems.
