The Last British Lancaster

Yesterday we went to Westdale Lane in Nottingham to see the flypast by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s  Avro Lancaster.
This particular aircraft was completed at Hawarden Airfield, Chester on May 31 1945 and its serial number is PA474.
This sole remaining British Lancaster is currently painted as “Thumper Mk III“.


Thumper Mk III” was an aircraft of 617 Squadron, the home of the very, very best.

Here are my photos. They are woefully unworthy of the world’s most beautiful bomber.
