The Haynes Company is world famous for it's highly regarded series of Owners Workshop Manuals for cars, motorbikes and light commercial vehicles. However, in 2007 they diversified their range of books by producing (in conjunction with the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight) a workshop manual for the Supermarine Spitfire. Since then they have continued and expanded their range of manuals to include many other historic aircraft, tanks and military vehicles, all produced on a limited basis.
This book concerns all Marks of the famous Avro Lancaster heavy bomber, from 1941 onwards. Produced in conjunction with the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, the book uses the BBMF's own airworthy and flying Lancaster, PA474 as the basis for all the technical information and the many detailed photographs and drawings contained in it. The book contains 160 pages and is copiuosly illustrated throughout with black and white and full colour photographs and many line drawings and is authored by Jarrod Cotter and Paul Blackah MBE.
