Default Lancaster returns to AWM

Why don't they donate/lend it to H.A.R.S. and have a flying memorial.

Avro Lancaster B1 W4783/A66-2 (aka "G for George") returned to the
Australian War Memorial in Canberra yestday after a 5 year cosmetic
restoration. "George" made 90 flights, including 54 bombing raids, with
RAAF No. 460 Squadron in 1943-44, at a time when the average life
expectancy of a Lancaster and its crew was 30 missions. The new
Lancaster exhibit will be open to the public in December.
