Title: Avro 685 York

Development of the Avro York began in 1941 by marrying the wings, tail and undercarriage of the Lancaster with a new “squared-off” fuselage. First flown in 1942, 258 examples were produced between 1942 and 1946. One aircraft became a flying conference room for Winston Churchill. Post-war the type was responsible for nearly half of Britain’s contribution to the Berlin airlift.
