The Avro Lancaster is a British four-engined Second World War heavy bomber made initially by Avro for the Royal Air Force (RAF). It first saw active service in 1942, and together with the Handley Page Halifax it was one of the main heavy bombers of the RAF, the RCAF, and squadrons from other Commonwealth and European countries serving within RAF Bomber Command.
The “Lanc”, as it was affectionately known, became the most famous and most successful of the Second World War night bombers, “delivering 608,612 tons of bombs in 156,000 sorties.” Although the Lancaster was primarily a night bomber, it excelled in many other roles including daylight precision bombing, and gained worldwide renown as the “Dam Buster” used in the 1943 Operation Chastise raids on Germany’s Ruhr Valley dams.

  • Thank you so much David, it is a beautiful plane, we were supposed to have the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight consisting of the Spitfire, Lancaster and Hurracaine. But the Hurracaine was up in London for a fly past. But they still looked great. Here is a link to my shot of the three of them from a previous show Hope you like it.x
