- General info
As RAF Bomber Command took the war to the enemy under Air Chief Marshall Arthur Harris, the four-engined Avro Lancaster reigned supreme, replacing the rugged, reliable Wellington in laying waste to German cities by night. This most successful of all World War II 'heavies' could carry more than its own weight in bomb load, including the 22,000 pound Grand Slam Earthquake bomb - the biggest conventional weapon ever made. And when fearless Guy Gibson led 617 Squadron to fame on the low-level Dambuster raid - one of the war's most daring operations - the Lancaster was confirmed as an aviation legend.

I don't think there will be many that will want this specialised documentary, and those that do will probably not need a review; but it is was very interesting even for a casual spectator like myself.
