Avro Lancaster - British Legend Cushion

Printed one side, the  cushion displays an image of the legendary Lancaster and text: The 'Lanc' was the Royal Air Force's WWII principal heavy bomber and the only aircraft capable of carrying the 22,000lb 'Grand Slam' bomb. It excelled in both daylight and night-time bombing and the aircraft's profile was elevated further by the famous 'Bouncing Bomb' 'Dam Busters' raids in the Ruhr Valley in 1943.

Size: 37 x 37 cm

Cover Material: 95% Polyester, 5% Cotton
Polyester Pad Included

The Lancaster was designed by Roy Chadwick and his team, the very same designers of The Avro Vulcan. There are only two Avro Lancasters left flying in the world today - The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum's 'Vera' and the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s (BBMF) 'Thumper'.

In 2014 'Vera' flew from Hamilton, Ontario to meet her British counterpart. The Avro Sisters DVD covers that exciting 2014 display season and focuses on the Avro Lancasters and Avro Vulcan meetings that gave the aviation community a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see these classic Avro 'sisters' together.
