Beautiful Avro Lancaster. Considered Britain's greatest bomber for WW2. Main aircraft used for night assaults on Germany. Four engines allow the plane to fly at 462km/h, and the heavy bomber delivered a bigger bombload than any other plane in Europe- 6350kgs to be exact. One of my familys favourite planes.

Dunlop joined the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) in 1942 and became one of a small group of female pilots based at White Waltham in Berkshire who were trained to fly 38 types of aircraft between factories and military airfields across the country.
