    Default On board Avro Lancaster 'Just Jane'

    I had a great experience this week touring the interior of 'Just Jane' at East Kirkby!

    Sat in all the turrets and the cockpit and had a very knowledgeable guide who gave us an amazing insight to life on board

    Great post Nick! Did you notice that unique smell that old wartime aircraft seem to have that's a cross between petrol, hydraulic oil, dope and for some reason the sticky insulating canvas tape on the electrics?? That was always very apparent to me on the old warbirds down at RAF Cosford, even after they hadn't flown for decades.

    Regards, Ned.

    Yes Ned indeed I did! During the war the smell of fear would have been added to the mix!!

    I think you may be referring to "Eau de Elsan" perhaps....????
