The Avro Lancaster is a British four-engine World War II heavy bomber, designed and built by Avro for the Royal Air Force (RAF). It first saw active service with RAF Bomber Command in 1942 and, as the strategic bombing offensive over Europe gathered momentum, it became the main heavy bomber used by the RAF. The “Lanc”, as it was affectionately known, became the most famous and most successful of the Second World War night bombers, delivering 608,612 long tons of bombs in 156,000 sorties.
The Avro Lancaster B Mk.III was modified for special mission against the German dams during World War II. Twenty-three aircraft of this type were built to carry the “Upkeep” bouncing bomb for the dam busting raids. The bomb bay doors were removed and struts to carry the bomb were fitted in their place, with a hydraulic motor fitted to spin the bomb. Lamps were added to measure the required low-flying altitude at night. These changes helped to bring the Avro Lancaster B Mk.III in history as the “Dambuster”.
