This is an illustrated guide shown in over 100 images. It is a fascinating history of the Avro Lancaster, from the first trials of the prototype at Boscombe Down in 1941 through to the famous Dambusters raids of 1943. It includes complete technical specifications detailing the Lancaster's dimensions, weights, power, fuel and oil, performance and armament. It features over 100 photographs of the Avro Lancaster in action, as well as a cutaway diagram showing the interior construction of this classic bomber aircraft. The Avro Lancaster was a truly outstanding combat aircraft of World War II. Lancasters formed the main equipment of the Pathfinder Force, and they pioneeered low-level marking and precision attacks. This expertly written handbook describes the Lancaster's design and development, and includes eye witness accounts from pilots who flew it in action. It explains how and why the Lancaster was developed, and includes information about the aircraft's specifications, gun turrets, bomb loads, the squadrons who flew it, and its dramatic bombing operations. Long after World War II, the Lancaster retains a mystique unequalled by any other bomber.
