The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum sells flights in a number of their aircraft including the Lanc. It's pricey for 1 hour, $3,500 Canadian and a membership but it helps keep them flying.

Eh, I don't like the radial Mk. II's. It's the sound of four, synchronized Merlins that makes such a beautiful sound. But, a lovely pair of links, thanks again, Comrade!
