Amazing story of just one Lancaster bomber and the many crews who flew in her. A very well researched book and a must for any aviation fans.
It was interesting to read that an original survived the savages of war and all the things that was thrown at her.
It would be interesting to read of other bombers ie Mosquito or Halifax in a similar vein, the bombers were the work horse of the new fighting force, the Royal Air Force only came into being in 1918, and not enough is written about the 55,053 bomber crews who lost their lives.

Interesting story and insight into what it was like to fly in these planes during the war. The book also highlights the problems faced in the plane itself, the cold and unpressurised conditions and the special suits worn in the Lancaster by the rear gunner, that sometimes failed to heat the wearer!

An informative story about one very lucky lancaster bomber. It's an eye opener as to just how many of these beautiful planes were lost on ops and saddening that in the main 7 lads/men were lost each time one went down.

Great historical read providing invaluable facts about the Lanc and the Crews.
My Dad was a Lancaster Pilot with 101 Sq so the book gave me a great insight into his experiences.

Luck of a Lancaster: 107 Operations, 244 Crew, 103 Killed in Action is a great book for World War 2 enthusiasts showing the perils faced by those who flew in the Lancaster bomber.

Detailed and factual lists of all the missions but very little information on the brave crews who flew the plane.

The best book of its kind published in 30 years. These will become collectors pieces. Grab one while you can
