Summary

During the Second World War, RAF Lancaster bombers took the conflict into the very heart of Hitler's Third Reich, and flew some of the most daring operations of the war. Surprisingly, of the 7,377 Lancasters built, only two survive today, one in Britain and one in Canada.

Produced with the full cooperation of the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, and illustrated with incredible photographs, Avro Lancaster gives a rare and fascinating insight into how the Lancaster bomber was constructed, flown and operated, together with details of how it is serviced and maintained.

Author Biography

Jarrod Cotter is one of the lucky few to have flown in a Lancaster. He served for nine years in the RAF. He is co-author of the Haynes Avro Lancaster Manual, author of the Haynes P-51 Mustang Manual and Living Lancasters (Sutton). He is a former editor of FlyPast, Aviation Classics and Aeroplane Monthly magazines. He lives in Lincolnshire.

Paul Blackah joined the RAF in 1976 and trained as an airframe fitter. In 1993 he was posted to the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. His specialized knowledge of vintage aircraft is considered crucial to the maintenance of the aircraft in the flight. In the 1990s, Paul was closely involved in the restoration-to-flight of the Messerschmitt Bf109F 'Black 6'. He lives in Lincolnshire, England.
