The Lancaster History

No.424 (Tiger) Squadron RCAF celebrate the Squadron’s 2,000th sortie. INCREDIBLE black and white images of the famous WW2 Lancaster bomber which was central to the RAF’s bombing campaigns on Nazi Germany have been revealed in a new book documenting its history and crew. The stunning photographs tell the story of the plane and its crews and show the No. 460 Squadron standing proudly in front of a Lancaster called Aussie and the No.419 Squadron RCAF Lancaster at RAF Middleton St George working on the plane with parts scattered on the ground. Other photos show the devastation to the Krupp works in Essen, Germany that was completely destroyed by bomber command raids. The fascinating photographs have been revealed in the book, The Lancaster by retired military and commercial pilot, Gordon A. A. Wilson and is published by Amberley Publishing.
