Finally completed my first profile of the lanc.

This one is an example from 57 Squadron, the rear gunner on this aircraft was my father's cousin.

This lanc crashed November 6/7 while returning from a mining operation. It ran out of gas near Cowsden, U.K and
the entire crew was forced to bale out. All of theh crew survived and flew again together, successfully completing
their tour of operations.

Thanks No.1. Up next for me is the Short Stirling,  do you know where I can find reference drawings?

Great profile!

Somewhere in my files I also have some Stirling material. I will see whether it can help you with your new project. The Stirling is really a favorite of mine, so this will be a welcome event!

I greatly appreciate any line drawings or other reference material. This will be the first profile I have done where I have not had access to an actual aircraft to compare things to. No examples of the Stirling remain so this should be fun.
