Readying an Avro Lancaster for a night mission.
Everyone in the world (almost) has heard of the Avro Lancaster Bombers of World War II.., well, here's what happened to make it fly and to do it's ting.. who knew they were only due to fly for about 40 hours before meeting their end which more often than not was a fiery end somewhere over Occupied Europe and or the Engerlish Channel. Also, interesting news about Tail Gun Charlie who had to sit in an almost open canopy to fend off the tail-end fighters reigned against them. Who too knew these beasts flew on an One Hundred Octane Petrol - about two thousand gallons of the stuff. Apparently, as they were 'Bombed-up' but not yet in the air was classed as the most dangerous part of it's mission...some British and American crews were lost during this critical period.
The best night bombing raid film from an airman's point of view ever made - so some people say.
This Was Total Warfare.
