LANCASTER 75 TH ANNIVERSARY

lancaster-75This special edition by Key Publishing commemorates the 75th Anniversary of Britain’s greatest wartime bomber.  This superbly illustrated 98-page souvenir issue includes  an article I prepared ‘Over the Top’.

This article describes the remarkable flights of a modified Lancaster PD 328.  The aircraft, given the name Aries, was the first British aircraft to complete a round-the-world flight, which was achieved in late 1944.  A few months later, it flew to the Geographic and Magnetic North Poles to gain experience in Polar navigation.  It completed other record-breaking flights before being replaced by a Lincoln bomber.
