    Default Avro Lincoln B.II RF570 service history

    Hi all,

    I would like to ask if anybody could provide me a short service history about Avro Lincoln B.II RF570?
    I am interested mostly about the period around its service with No. 214 Sq.

    TIA

    Hi Pavel,

    From the Form 78 it served with 214 Squadron from 21-3-50 to 13-10-50.

    It seemed to have moved around a lot both prior, and subsequent, to its service with 214. There are three cards in total for the aircraft, if you'd like me to take photos of them off my microfilm reader and email them to you so you have the full service history, let me have your email address and I'll happily do so.

    All the best,

    Greg

    Dear Greg, many thanks!
    Thank you also for your kind offer, but it will be just enough for me if you can add here for those two dates additional info from where and to where.

    Thank you

    Hi Pavel,

    RF570 arrived with 214 ex-149 Squadron. The movement post-214 on the card is difficult to read (I'm using a 35mm reader to look at 16mm films, so the image is quite small!!), but it looks like it went back to Avro.

    Hope that helps, all the best as always,

    Greg
