As the third of Britain's four engines heavy bombers to enter
RAF service during WWII, the Avro Lancaster proved to be an exceptional
aircraft, possessing a large unobstructed bomb bay, which allowed it to carry
some of the largest bombs of the war. At least thirty five Lancasters managed
to complete an astonishing 100 missions or more and are referred to by
historians and enthusiasts as the Lancaster Centurions, an exclusive group of
extremely hard working bombers.
