Description

The legendary Avro Lancaster receives the famous Haynes Manual treatment with the full co-operation and authorisation of the Royal Air Force. Here is a unique perspective on what it takes to restore and operate a Lancaster, as well as a wonderful insight into the engineering and construction of this remarkable aeroplane. This highly detailed book is based primarily on the Battle of Britain Flight's Lancaster at RAF Coningsby.
