Avro Lancastrian II ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
A close derivative of the war-time Lancaster bomber, the Lancastrian was fitted with streamlined nose and tail cones. Lancastrians were used as long-range freighters, VIP transports, and jet engine test beds by the RAF, as fast long-range airliners and mailplanes by Trans Canada Air Lines, BOAC, BSAA, QUANTAS, and Alitalia, and as tankers by Flight Refuelling Ltd. Charter operators were Skyways and Silver City. Eighty-two aircraft were build, but most of them had vanished in scrapyards by the early nineteen-fifties. In the immediate post-war years, TCA offered twice-weekly Lancastrian flights from Dorval, Canada, to Prestwick and London, while BOAC and BSAA (under chief pilot D.C.T. Bennett) operated flights to Australia and South America, all based on a rather uneconomical ratio of five crew to up to fourteen passengers. The outbound leg from Hurn to Learmouth, Australia, took three days and well over fifty hours flying time, with Lydda, Karachi, and Ceylon serving as staging posts. BSAA's London to Buenos Aires flight took 56 hours. Either way, one needs to have plenty of time on one's hands to recreate these epic journeys. Gmax exterior model and textures by Manfred Jahn, FDE and 2D panel by Paul Edwards (based on a panel by Phil Perrott of Alphasim). The three texture sets included represent VM734 of 246 Squadron RAF, G-AGLY ("Norfolk") of BOAC, and G-AKFG of Flight Refuelling Ltd.
