    Hi - I'm searching for particular Lancaster crew photographs. That being a full frontal Lanc with literally hundreds of ground crew/pilots etc. all in the picture (even standing on the wings!) Seen a couple of photos many years ago, but just cannot track anything on the internet (nor the numerous Lanc publications). It could even be a Dambuster photo. Anyone able to assist?
    Happy to pay for photographic prints.

    Regards, Ian Brown

    Nice :D looking good.But I'm not sure it is a Lanc.Looking a little bit strange to me ( wing tips, nose).Anyway it appears it is possible to find more such pictures when using Google.:)

    I agree, great shot -- and it's a Halifax. Can't make out any prop spinners, so it's probably a MkIII, although the wings look a bit short.

    EXCELLENT - Thanks very much for that. It was the photograph that I'd been looking for! And so easy to order a large print from the Australian War Memorial!

    Now to test you guys to see if that wasn't just a "flash in the pan". There was a similar photograph taken of 617 Squadron (DAMBUSTERS). I've been Googling away, but still haven't come up with anything. Anyone able to provide suggestions?
    Cheers,
