    Well, it isn't the Lancaster but a thoughtful birthday gift nonetheless. It will have me in this lovely aircraft for a 20 minute flight on Friday at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum.

    Well, congratulations! One of the very best memories I have is of a similar birthday gift, 15 mins in a Harvard some years ago. Spearman is supposed to be a lovely flyer, too - I think you're going to enjoy Friday...

    Cheers, Pat.

    Hopefully the pilot will show you a loop or two. I reckon it's even better with an open cockpit.
