Hundreds of people have watched the UK's only flying Lancaster bomber take to the skies above Coventry Airport.
The refit of the Lancaster bomber has taken nearly six months
The World War II aircraft took off earlier on a test flight after almost eight months of restoration.
Mechanics stripped it down and gave it a complete mechanical overhaul. The only other working Lancaster can be found in Canada.
It is expected to fly to RAF Coningsby, in Lincolnshire, on Friday for the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
The bomber is due to fly along with three Spitfires and two Hurricanes.
