Product description

Seventy-five years ago, on March 3, 1942, the Avro Lancaster went to war for the first time. The 'Lanc' became the most important aircraft in Bomber Command's arsenal. Developed from the troublesome Manchester, Lancasters carried out hundreds of operations, the most famous being the 'Dams' raid of May 1943 and the capsizing the mighty warship Tirpitz in November 1944. By 1944 Lancasters were equipped to carry the 22,000lb 'Tallboy' bomb that created earthquake-like shockwaves bringing down bridges and tunnels. Lancasters were retired by the RAF in 1956 but continued to serve with the French navy into the early 1960s. 
 
This 100-page special publication from the team behind FlyPast magazine pays tribute to all who built, maintained and flew Lancasters, past and present. Using extensive archive images, renowned aviation writers and researchers present an incredible salute to an incredible aircraft. 
 
Features include: 

A tribute to the man who designed the Lancaster, Roy Chadwick 
How and where Lancasters were built 
From the disaster of the Manchester to the triumph of the Lancaster 
Potted histories of 75 Lancasters, from the earliest to the survivors 
Wartime operations and crew exploits 
Test-beds and trials airframes 
Legacy, the Lancaster 'family', the York and Lancastrian transports, the Lincoln and the Shackleton
