Aircraft – The Lancaster Bomber

Registered as C-GVRA, she is flying in the markings of the RCAF 419 (Moose) Squadron.

The Canadian Lancaster is named after one courageous RCAF pilot, P/O Andrew Mynarski, who attempted to rescue his rear gunner whilst his aircraft was crippled after an attack by an enemy night fighter. He fought his way to the back of the aircraft to release his fellow crew member, who fortunately survived. P/O Mynarski unfortunately didn't, and his terrible ordeal and selfless actions were recognised as acts of extreme bravery, and he was awarded the Victoria Cross posthumously. The Canadian Lancaster proudly wears the colours and markings of this brave chap.
