DVD - As RAF Bomber Command took the war to the enemy under Air Chief Marshal Arthur Harris, the four-engined Avro Lancaster reined supreme, replacing the rugged, reliable Wellington in laying waste to German cities by night. This most successful of all World War II 'heavies' could carry more than its own weight in bomb load, including the 22,000 pound Grand Slam Earthquake Bomb - the biggest conventional weapon ever made. And when fearless Guy Gibson led 6I7 Squadron to fame on the low-level Dambuster raid - one of the war's most daring operations - the Lancaster was confirmed as an aviation legend. With recent colour film of 'City of Lincoln', the RAF's last airworthy Lancaster, among the wartime footage, this is the Lancaster's dramatic story.
BOOK - Marshal of the Royal Air Force Sir Arthur Harris called the Lancaster 'the greatest single factor in winning the war'. The Lancaster Story tells the tale of this aircraft from birth to the last operational flights with the RAF in 1956. The evocative Lancaster lives on with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, also covered here, and the book contains fascinating 'Did You Know' facts and a complete listing of Lancaster milestones and Lancaster survivors.
