Avro Lancaster B.Mk I S-for-Sugar

Avro Lancaster S-for-Sugar

Avro Lancaster S-for-Sugar being prepared for its 97th mission. Note the 4,000lb bomb in the centre of the scene. Sadly the first letter of the squadron code is obscured.

The serial number R5868 is just visible to the right of the S, indicating that the aircraft was originally ordered from Metropolitan-Vickers at Trefford Park as a Manchester Mk I, but was built as a Lancaster B Mk.I
