Brief history of the Avro Lancaster
The Avro Lancaster was a British four-engined strategic bomber that was used as the RAF’s principal heavy bomber during the latter half of the Second World War. It was designed and manufactured by Avro in Chadderton near Oldham, Greater Manchester with production moving to Canada in early 1942.
A particularly famous mission was performed by the Lancaster on 17th -18th May 1943. Operation Chastise was carried out by 617 Squadron in modified Mk IIIs carrying the legendary Bouncing Bomb, which had been designed by British engineer Barnes Wallis. The story of the operation was later made into the iconic film, The Dam Busters.
