Important update - 29 August 2014
Canadian Lancaster grounded
We have unfortunately received news from the RAF that the Canadian Lancaster is currently grounded at Durham Tees Valley airport, due to engine issues.
That means it is not available for the scheduled tours at the BBMF Visitor Centre on Tuesday 2 September.
For the most up-to-date information on the situation, please visit the RAF BBMF website, the Canadian Lancaster homepage, twitter @RAFBBMF and facebook.
We are still expecting the RAF BBMF aircraft to be available for viewing on these dates, and anyone booked for a tour will be able to visit and see these aircraft.
