Lancaster Bomber Photographs
Well, if you're looking at this page, and you have the patience to wait for my amateur pictures to load, you must like the Lancaster Bomber as much as I do! I think it was and is a superb flying machine and, in flight, it has a special presence which is slightly awe-inspiring. I don't suppose it was the most comfortable aeroplane for it's crews, but it had a job to do and it did it very well indeed.
There is only one air-worthy Lancaster still flying in the United Kingdom. The aircraft has been lovingly restored and, hopefully, still has sufficient flying hours left for a number of years. The Battle of Britain Flight, with the Spitfire and the Hurricane flanking the old Lancaster always brings a lump to my throat. I feel privileged to have been able to watch its majestic flights at several airshows in the past.
N.B. Put your cursor on each picture. A little box will appear with my comments.
