RAF BBMF AVRO LANCASTER

The Avro Lancaster is the most famous and successful RAF heavy bomber of World War Two. The prototype Lancaster took to the air for its first flight from Woodford, Manchester, on 9th January 1941; the first production Lancaster flew later that year on 31st October. Its performance, its ruggedness, reliability and to many its sheer charisma, endeared it to its crews who were proud to fly this famous thoroughbred and it lives on today in BBMF Lancaster PA474, one of only two flying Lancasters in the world.
