Haynes Avro Lancaster Owners' Workshop Manual (1941 onwards – all marks): An Insight into Owning, Restoring, Servicing and Flying Britain's Legendary World War II Bomber.

The legendary Avro Lancaster receives the famous Haynes manual treatment with the full co-operation and authorisation of the Royal Air Force. Here is a unique insight into what it takes to restore and operate a Lancaster, as well as a wonderful insight into the engineering and construction of this remarkable aeroplane. Presented mainly in colour, this highly detailed and attractively designed book is based primarily around the major overhaul of the Battle of Britain Flight Lancaster at RAF Coningsby.
