Lancaster bomber takes off
The Avro Lancaster bomber was a key weapon of the Allies during the War. More than 7,000 were produced, which flew a total of more than 150,000 missions - from which more than 3,000 planes were never to return.
The roar of a bomber squadron taking off and returning was a familiar sound to many thousands of people living in southern England. The Lancaster remains a feature of events to commemorate the War.
