The Avro Lancaster is the most successful British heavy bomber of World War II.
The Lancaster first flew in January 1941 and entered production in early 1942; it entered combat in April of that year. A mid-wing design with a twin tail, the Lancaster was powered by four 1,460-horsepower Merlins, had a wingspan of 102 feet (31 metres), and was 69 feet (21 metres) long.
It was operated by a basic crew of seven, including the pilot, copilot, bombardier, navigator, radioman, and gunners. It could reach a maximum speed of 280 miles (450 km) per hour and a ceiling of 24,500 feet (7,500 metres), and it could carry a 14,000-pound (6,350-kg) bomb load to a range of 1,660 miles (2,670 km) at 200 miles (320 km) per hour.
Of the 7,377 aircraft built, 3,736 were lost during the War (3,249 in action and 487 in ground accidents). Today 17 remain in complete form, two of which are airworthy.

Dear All at Masterpiece,
As always, the canvas etc arrived perfectly packed. When I have completed my pictures I use the cylinders they come in to send the completed article to the family members who live in Somerset and are usually the recipients who are delighted to have them. I have become really popular with them all, especially grandson, Aaron, who loved the Spitfire and is looking forward to having the Lancaster too.
Thank you again,
