The Avro Lancaster was a British strategic heavy bomber aircraft that was used as the RAF's principal heavy bomber during World War II. It’s 4 Merlin engines and unobstructed 33-foot long bomb bay gave it the capacity to carry the largest payload of any bomber in the war. The Lancaster was primarily a night bomber, but it was versatile enough to excel in many other roles, including daytime precision bombings, and it was tough enough to return to base after heavy damage.
Lancaster NX611 “Just Jane” is named after a popular wartime cartoon character in the Daily Mirror. It is the main attraction of the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, opened to the public in 1988 by Lincolnshire farmers Fred and Harold Panton as a memorial to their older brother who died during the war. It is currently undergoing restoration to full flying status.
