A Lancaster with radial engines - Bristol Hercules. To guard against the possibility of shortages of RR Merlins, the Lancaster was adapted to take the Bristol engine. This is the prototype, built at Chadderton and assembled and first flown from Ringway on 26 November 1941. 300 production aircraft were built by Armstrong Whitworth and served with six Bomber Command squadrons. From Avro 60 years ago.

The vast majority of Lancasters were powered by the inline Merlin engine. This is one of 200 powered by the Bristol Hercules radial engine. They were built in 1942/43 by Armstrong Whitworth as an insurance against shortages of Merlins. DS778 was flown by 408 (Canadian) Squadron based at RAF Balderton, Notts. It was lost on a raid on Kassel on 23 October 1943. From AWA 60 years ago.
