This Lancaster B.Mk.I ME559 was built by Metropolitan Vickers in Manchester in the winter of 1943/1944, and led a very busy life with 617 Sqn up until its fuel shortage and forced landing at Kegostrov on September 11, 1944. It is seen here in its modified form while operating with the 16th Transport Detachment of the White Sea Flotilla Air Force.
