It is one of the most famous bombers of World War II. More than 7,300 were built. Today there are only 17 left, and only two can fly.
In Europe, the only remaining airworthy Lancaster is PA474, belonging to the RAF’s Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. An aircraft that pays tribute to the bomber crews who paid a heavy price for defeating Nazi Germany: 3,249 Lancasters were lost in action during that war. The roar of this aircraft is today unique in Europe. The other airworthy unit is preserved in Canada. Capspread has posted this video of PA474, recorded on May 26 at RAF Coningsby:
