Lancaster X FM213 as Lady Orchid

Lancaster X FM213 as Lady Orchid

Here we see a Lancaster Mk.X with the nose art of 'Lady Orchid', KB895, a Lancaster that served with No.434 Squadron, and that actually makes up part of this aircraft.

The aircraft is a Lancaster Mk.X, original Canadian serial number FM213. The aircraft is now at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, and is still flying.

Many thanks to Robert Bourlier for sending us this photograph.
