Lancasters on field

Previous | Home | Next

This Photo comes from the collection of Walter Henry Powell, and shows Lancasters lined up on the field with Ground Crew, and Aircrew on evidence. Note the person leaning out of the cockpit on the left and the use of bicycles, including the one behind the Air gunner in the foreground, and the Airman riding his bicycle on the right. In the fuel starved U.K. the airmen and ground crew often used bicycles.
