Great shots of great aircraft. Good to know the Canadian Lanc can still make it across the pond!

I didn't realize it ever could have made it across the pond! IIRC, it was never known for its range, but rather its ability to carry insane payloads. It was the only plane of its era capable of delivering the 22,000 lb "Grand Slam".

Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning
