Bomber Boys - The Fighting Lancaster 2010 (DVD)
The stories of the re-united RAF 625 Sqaudron Lancaster "The Lucky H" as they reminisce about their WWII missions.
Narrated by R H Thompson.
Joe English learned to fly a Lancaster bomber before he could drive a car. During World War Two, RAF Bomber Command called upon young men barely out of their teens to fly some of the most dangerous missions of the entire war.
In 1943, the life expectancy of an air gunner was just three minutes in combat. For every 100 Bomber Command aircrew, only 24 would survive their tour...
Now Joe and the surviving aircrew from RAF 625 Squadron Lancaster ‘The Lucky H’ are reunited to reveal for the first time what it was like for them to fly heavy bomber missions during WWII.
At the same time, seven grandsons of bomber veterans experience life in a recreation of a wartime British Commonwealth Air Training Plant. The veterans and their grandchildren are then reunited for an unforgettable flight in one of only two surviving airworthy Lancasters before setting out together to visit the graves of wartime comrades in Europe.
