Avro Lancaster

One of the most famous aircraft of the Second World War, thousands of Canadian airmen and ground crew served with RCAF and RAF Lancaster squadrons during the war. By late 1944, the Canadian No. 6 Group of Bomber Command operated thirteen squadrons of Lancasters in the war against Germany. At home, thousands more Canadians worked at Victory Aircraft in Malton (Toronto) to produce 430 Lancasters. In total 7,377 Lancasters rolled off the production lines in Britain and Canada. Today, only two are in flying condition.
