LancMainA story by David Biehn ad Robert Kostecka – Back in the Saddle – “There it is – on the left!” someone cried from behind us. Five miles to the southwest, veteran airline pilots Don Schofield and Andy Dobson sat in the cockpit of the fast-approaching Lancaster. Today, it was Don’s turn to sit in the left seat and fly this history-making bomber. Their flight from the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum’s home base in Hamilton, Ontario had been uneventful. As they neared Gatineau airport – and the crowd that anxiously awaited them – Don called for more power: “Set 2400 RPM and four pounds.” Eighty-five year old Cornwall resident Bob MacDonell stood on the grass next to the taxiway. His family and friends surrounded him as he gazed upwards at the Lancaster, with tear-filled eyes. Bob had not flown a Lancaster for sixty-three years. But today, this special guest of Vintage Wings would be reunited with his wartime mount. You can read more of this story by visiting the Vintage Wings’ web-site here.
