Museum Makers Choice – The Lancaster Bomber

The Avro Lancaster was a British heavy bomber plane. It was in use by the RAF during the Second World War. The plane was designed by Roy Chadwick and his Avro team. Lancasters had four Rolls Royce Merlin XX liquid cooled engines. The first RAF squadrons to fly Lancasters were the No. 44 and No 97 Squadrons who were both based at Waddington in Lincolnshire. Lancaster’s remained in use after the War, with the last Lancaster retiring in late 1954.

In this film Museum Maker, Nathan Kynman, takes a closer look at a model Lancaster Bomber. The Lancaster Bomber is on display in the People’s War Gallery.
