Avro Lancaster aircraft photo (No.4)

A very sad looking Lancaster bomber NN801 receives the less-than-careful attentions of the scrap man and his cutting gear. Having dodged German flak attacks it seems a shame that this once proud aircraft should get such an undignified send-off for scrap.

I am always on the look-out for fab old photos like this Avro Lancaster image shown above. If you have any photographs that you think would fit in well here, please please get in touch. Photos of aircraft, whether military or civilian, of other Lancasters or different Avros, are all keenly sought, thanks! So long as it has an aviation theme to it, I'll put it on here. Please drop me a line via the contact page if you have anything suitable to share. The rest of Dave's airplane photographs from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and the 1970s can be found on this page.
