Beautiful Avro Lancaster. Considered Britain's greatest bomber for WW2. Main aircraft used for night assaults on Germany. Four engines allow the plane to fly at 462km/h, and the heavy bomber delivered a bigger bombload than any other plane in Europe- 6350kgs to be exact. One of my familys favourite planes.
