The latest book in the MMP White Series is this survey of all surviving Avro Lancasters, around the world. The author describes the operational career of each aircraft, the sometimes tortuous routes by which they survived, and describes and illustrates their current status and condition. Photos of the aircraft in service and after are joined by comprehensive detail photos of their current state, showing all aspects of the airframes and highlighting the superb restoration work seen on them. Seventeen Lancasters are represented, currently in Britain, Canada, France, Australia, New Zealand and the USA.
This book is dedicated to all those who have worked so hard over the years to save and restore these magnificent warplanes, and also to those who flew and serviced the iconic ?Lanc? during its long service career, in WW2 and after.
Essential reading for all who love this amazing aircraft, especially those who can?t afford the round-the-world ticket to see them all!
