FLYPAST – LINCOLN IN COMBAT

LINCOLNThe Spotlight feature in the August 2017 edition of the magazine focuses on the Avro Lincoln, a four-engine bomber derived from the Lancaster.  Just too late to see operational service during the Second Word War, it was the mainstay of Bomber Command until the advent of the jet bombers.  It did however, play an important part during air policing and counter insurgency operations in Malaya and in Kenya.  My article, Big Bomber Little Wars describes the role played by Lincolns of the RAF and the RAAF.
