Avro Lancaster R5868

‹ Return to Aviation History

Not sure if this Lanc flew the most operations or whether it had the second highest tally? I’ve a book that states R5868 flew more operations than any other. Only about 35 Lancasters flew and survived more than 100 operations.

    Thanks all.

    Replaced this photo after realising I’d uploaded the wrong (slightly out of focus) one. Though I wish I’d left well alone. This was the original.
