Avro Lancaster

Avro Lancaster

One of just two flying Lancaster bombers in the world, C-GVRA resides at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton, Ont. The aircraft is a flying memorial to the Bomber Command crews of the Second World War, and is officially named the “Mynarski Memorial Lancaster.” Here, its port side carries special markings honouring the 75th anniversary of the famous RAF 617 Squadron Dambuster raid. Wing Commander Guy Gibson’s aircraft, AJ-G, had two Canadians on board when he led the daring mission in May 1943. Mike Reyno Photo
