Brian neither will be forgotten IMHO they are too much a part of history. Perhaps in a hundred more years when WWII will not be remembered by anyone living.God how cool is that! Thanks for sharing, we need to honor those birds and the men who flew them so they aren't forgotten.
you should google the lancaster dam busters. very interesting how these planes were used, the men who flew them, and the physics involved in the bomb design and delivery. I will see if can find a video and post it hereI recently got an up close and personal look at a Lancaster. The first of the month the wife and I did a Caravan tour of the Canadian Rockies. In Nanton Alberta the tour bus stopped at an air museum and they had a flying Lancaster. I was surprised at how small it actually was.
Was this the Lancaster that was rescued a number of years back . It was used as a pedalsted display and had been vandalized. I know that ship was restored.BTW, the lancaster at Nanton is, IIRC, one of the bombers that flew the dam busting missions. I will have to dig out my info from the visit years ago.
