Lancaster is the story of the iconic WW2 bomber told through the words of the last surviving crew members, re-mastered archive material and extraordinary aerial footage of the RAF’s last airworthy Lancaster.

In Detail

An epic and poignant story of courage, fear, friendship and the moral complexities of war, the film brings to life the WWII bomber’s dramatic role during wartime.

Responsible for some of the most famous and infamous missions in World War II history, from the Dambuster raids to the controversial bombing of Dresden, the Lancaster would help turn the tide of war. But there was a deadly price to be paid. 55,000 young men – half of all Bomber Command’s aircrew – died over Nazi occupied Europe. Their average age was just 22.

Interviews of 38 veterans form the emotional and deeply moving core of the film. The film also features breath-taking aerial footage from the world’s top aviation photographer, John Dibbs, and an original score from composer Chris Roe performed by the Central Band of the RAF.
