Avro Manchester in RAF Service: Wingleader Photo Archive Number 23
The Avro Manchester is a subject that we always wanted to cover in this series and we are delighted that our Lancaster expert Peter Allam agreed to take it on. Many of the modifications and innovations that were introduced on the Manchester went on to be part of the mighty Lancaster, and Peter has done a terrific job in identifying and explaining them all in the following pages.
If you have even a passing interest in the Avro Lancaster then this is definitely a book for you. Although badly let down by its Rolls-Royce Vulture engines, the Manchester was nevertheless a very modern design for its day and deserves its place on the bookshelf and, hopefully one day, on a modelling bench as well.
As always, we have some superb high-res images throughout the book and have pulled out the shadow detail to really highlight the small vents and aerials that have been overlooked since WW2.
This book contains approx 120 original wartime/pre-war photos and 6 in-depth colour profiles
In addition to carrying out in-depth research on the Lancaster over the last 40 years, Peter has also authored a variety of articles on WW2 aviation subjects for various journals, including the membership magazines of the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum and Vintage Wings of Canada.
In the early 1980s Peter began a career as an aircraft engineer and has worked on most of the larger transport jets, with the occasional diversion into WW2 fighters and light aviation. Born and raised in Surrey, UK, for the last 15 years Peter has called Ontario, Canada his home.
