Tail Turret of Lancaster X FM213

Here we see the tail turret of a Lancaster Mk.X, showing the arrangement of the four guns and the large open spaces that let the cold air into the turret.

The aircraft is a Lancaster Mk.X, original Canadian serial number FM213. The aircraft is now at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, and is still flying.

Many thanks to Robert Bourlier for sending us this photograph.
