Title: Avro 691 Lancastrian

The Lancastrian was a fairly simple conversion of the Lancaster bomber by adding a lengthened streamlined nose and tailcone. Long range fuel tanks were fitted as standard into what was the bomb bay. The initial aircraft were conversions of Lancasters carried out in Canada, but post 1945 Avro built a number of new examples for the RAF and BOAC. Due to its limited cubic capacity the aircraft was mainly used for mail and VIP passengers.
