Avro Lancaster B Mk VII NX611 Just Jane at Night,

In July 1944, a mostly Canadian crew set out
from England on a night bombing mission aboard Lancaster L7576 of Royal Air Force Bomber Command. Awaiting them was a nocturnal gantlet
of German radar, anti-aircraft artillery and specialized night fighters. The fate of some of the crew remained a mystery for decades. This Lancaster is Just Jane, from the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre in East Kirby, England. (Peter Lane/Alamy)
