Fantastic Octopus Publishing hardback aviation book by Norman Franks: Ton Up Lancs. Contains 224 fact filled pages of text and black and white photos a photographic history of the 35 Lancasters that each completed 100 sorties

Originally a revised study following its first appearance under the Claims to Fame series, the book focuses on the story of the Avro Lancasters that completed one hundred sorties. Thirty-five histories are recorded in this book with stories and personal photographs from the aircrew that flew these aircraft. The most famous, R5868 Queenie, can still be seen in the Bomber Command Hall at RAF Museum, London. Renowned author Norman Franks also examines the controversial accounting of the number of operations flown by detailing each raid undertaken by pilots and crew during 1942-1945 including sorties over Hitler s Third Reich, Northern Italy and during support missions before and after D-Day. With over 200 photographs reproduced throughout the book and an account from Sgt Ron Clark DFC, who flew EE139 Phantom of the Ruhr on its first sortie, Ton-Up Lancs is a fascinating tribute to both the aircraft and aircrew that participated in Bomber Command duties.”
