Pilot the four-engine heavy bomber, the Avro Lancaster, in this flight simulator add on for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004/ X for PC.
"I believe the Lancaster was the greatest single factor in winning the war" – excerpt from a letter from Sir Arthur Harris, Wartime commander of RAF Bomber Command to Sir Roy Dobson of Avro, the designers and manufacturers of the Lancaster bomber.
The Avro Lancaster, a four-engine heavy bomber, (affectionately known as Lanc or Lankie) first entered service in 1942 and by the end of the Second World War had been involved in over 150,000 sorties. Most famous for its precision bombing "Dam Buster" raids, codenamed Operation Chastise, on the dams of the Ruhr Valley, the Lancaster excelled at night bombing.
During its operational life the Lancaster was constantly being improved or adapted for new weapons or equipment.
