Just got this message:

"Hope you are well/

Been trying to get on the Forum but with no luck. Came across mention of the LB Good again. Sadly it is not in Tobruk now but at El Adem airbase, being restored. The military took charge of it because the Tourist Office was'nt looking after it."

FWIW If they need the reduction gear from one of the LBG engines, I saw it 2 weeks ago displayed in the same hanger as the restored Lancaster!!! :)

So, you mean that it won't fly again?

I just came across this while doing some research...

It's a Map light and a .50 Cal round from the nose gun of the Lady Be Good. It was collected by Jim Walker, an Engineer for McDonald Douglas who was on an expedition there with the British in 1968. He passed it on prior to his death in 2002. Link to web site below the photo. There are many article on this page, it's about halfway down.

Out of interest, came across this website for another famous aircraft wreck and the controversy over what should happen to such a famous artefact is the same as LBG
In this case, the B17 left in a swamp in Papua New Guinea has been "rescued" by a rich american....
Cooincidentally I was sent to work in PNG after Libya, and came across plenty of jAP/us WW2 relics but knew nothing about this wreck until I was on my way out of the country and purchased the "pacfic aircraft wrecks" book in the Port Moresby airport shop, maybe I would have stayed there and put up with the mosquitos and crocodiles,
Check it out...
