These pics are from the Saskatoon Control Tower as the crew of Avro Lancaster C-GVRA did a couple of passes at YXE and then went to Winnipeg.
There's only two of them still flying in the world and this one flew over Saskatoon to promote the Canada Remembers Air Show in August 2009.
Over 400 Lancaster MK X's were built in Canada and shipped overseas for flying duty.
And throughout the entire world, only two still fly today, one in England and one in Canada.
The bomber is one hundred and two feet long and just under 70 feet wide.
It can reach top speeds of 287 miles and hour and has four Rolls Royce Merlin Engines.
