Text: Here is RCAF Beech King Air C-90 C-FMFZ leased from KF Aerospace, for use by 3 CFFTS at South Port, Portage la Praire, MB. 3 CFFTS (Canadian Forces Flying Training School) had the wonderful idea of honouring WW II aircraft with the markings of those aircraft. This particular aircraft is wearing the markings of 408 Sqn (EQ is the 408 Sqn identifier) EQ-Z "Zombie" Lancaster LL-725. George Oliver painted the original nose art on the 408 Sqn Lancaster after they chose to continue to their target on three engines and were listed as missing so they were "Zombies", the living dead. They made it back.

I've seen this aircraft Carl, it landed at YYC one day when I was still there. Didn't get a photo of it though unfortunately.

If I had the time, I would do a diorama with the nose removed for maintenance and call it "Dental Work".  If anyone else wants to copy the idea go for it.
