McTavish: "After the war, my grandfather's uncle, a Mr.
Eggbert, purchased an Avro Lancaster from war surplus and towed it to
his gas station outside of Red Deer, Alberta. This wasn't the only
Lancaster bought by a local after the war (the CWHs Lancaster
used a center section salvaged from a Lancaster turned shed). But for
a quarter, you could climb up inside the bomber and take a look
around. It was something that my dad remembers quite well, since he
and his brother would play in the Lanc every time the family drove
through the area.
