Avro Lancaster to York, by Derek A King
Victory was still uncertain and production of the Lancaster bomber in full flow when the Avro company launched a versatile four-engine transport aircraft, the York.
The York first flew in July 1942. It utilised the proven design of the Lancaster's wing and tail unit and harnessed the reliability of the Rolls-Royce Merlin.
The book includes detailed individual aircraft histories, more than 800 photographs (160 in colour) and colour side views. There is much to fascinate historians and anybody who was involved in aviation during those tumultuous years.
