Yes there is an airworthy Mk. X Lancaster at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton. The only other airworthy Lancaster extant is in the BBMF in England

and it flew very low over my house with two Spitfires last Sunday returning to base after displaying at Duxford.

Great photo by the way.

The Lancaster from the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum used to be on static display on a pedestal down at the lakeshore here in Toronto.
I shot it there many years ago before it was removed and restored to flying condition in Hamilton.
I've seen it flying over Toronto a number of times in the last couple of years, and truly one never forgets the wonderful sound of its four Rolls-Royce Merlins howling as it passes overhead.
