Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum Lancaster Mk X—Crown Copyright image
I have never seen a Lancaster up close. That bomb bay is almost as big as my barn. Compared to a B-24 or B-17 (I have been in their bomb bays), the Lancaster’s bomb bay looks to hold a whole lot more.
Lancasters have been favorites of model builders for a long time. It is favored by those who build giant scale RC models. One of the more spectacular highly detailed models is this one with a 19′ wingspan.
19 feet! Amazing–it must have its own ground crew.
The Lanc’s bomb bay indeed is long (also uninterrupted) and why it was the aircraft which could carry the blockbuster bombs in WW II.
Ahhh! I was so lucky to have seen ‘VeRA’ at IWM Duxford (along with the BBMF’s PA474, of course)
