Legendary British Bomber
The Avro Lancaster was the representative British bomber aircraft of WWII. It was a robust design which was capable of dropping massive 10-ton bombs from its cavernous bomb bay. In addition to the Mk.I, which was powered by Merlin engines made by Rolls-Royce, the Packard Merlin-powered Mk.III was also produced. Over 7,000 Lancasters were built and they played a vital part in the destruction of Germany's industrial base by flying 156,000 sorties and dropping approximately 600,000 tons of bombs.
