Avro Lancaster B1 PA474

A regular at airshows since the 70's, this is one of only two airworthy Lancasters in the world (the other being in Canada). Operated by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight since 1973, it was originally handed over to the RAF in 1945. Being delivered just too late to see action in WWII it ended up spending much of its time as a test/trials aircraft. It is seen here displaying at the Shoreham Airshow.
