Avro Lancaster

[BACK]

The Lancaster grew out of Avro's disappoint Manchester project that was an underpowered twin-engine design. The first Lancaster was a Manchester fitted with four Rolls-Royce Merlin engines that first flew on 9/Jan/1941. Eventually, 7377 a/c would be built with some surviving the war as maritime patrol, transport, and test a/c. Only two airworthy examples remain today.
