To Those Interested:

If you live in the USA, check your local PBS schedule. Check out "Bomber Boys: The Fighting Lancaster". A Great documentary that focuses
simultaneously on a unit of veterans who flew Lancaster bombers and on a group of men, 17 - 26 years in age, whose grandfathers served on flight crews themselves in WWII and who have agreed to undergo the same basic training as did their veteran grandfathers before them.

For all others that are unable to check it out or do not have PBS you can purchase this fine programme on DVD from this place :

"Bomber Boys : The Fighting Lancaster" DVD (http://http://www.mfilms.com/index.php?section=prog_film_dis&id=242)

PBS SCHEDULE (http://www.iptv.org/program.cfm?ID=219179)

It has great interviews of the Lancaster crew, great CGI, great recreations, great sound track, it is one to keep and belong to your World War 2 airforce collection.

Hope you all get to check it out!

Thanks for the heads up...

I recall reading that they used the Lanc based in Hamilton, Ontario (one of last few flying) in this - and a famous (name escapes me) producer was part of this effort - himself being a former crewmember of a Lanc.

I'm s*** out of luck,I checked my station's listings as far ahead as it goes and nothing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif.

That's the problem with PBS,the smaller stations can only purchase certain programs.You hear about something that sounds good,expect to find it,only to be kicked in the cajones.

*EDIT*I checked pbs.org(nationwide home site),and there's no mention.I guess you Iowa aviation/WW2 buffs are lucky.
