AVRO LANCASTER

This is our second reel model dedicated to one of the most famed British planes of WWII. The Avro Lancaster - surely the most famous of all Avro military aircraft, and without doubt the most successful heavy night bomber to be deployed over Europe, during World War II. Flying night sorties over occupied Europe, the aircraft's unique shape and distinctive sound made it instantly recognisable. Roy Chadwick was the designer of the Lancaster, working with the famous A.V. Roe (founder of Avro). He worked on some of the most famous aircraft of the time, and left a legacy that shaped modern aviation.
