    I thought you may like to see these pictures taken from a Lancaster of a "competition" between the two to see who could remain in the air on the fewest number of engines!

    Really? If you were in a contest why shut down two engines on one side?

    Buffnut: the text on picture 1 says the Lancaster won when it shut down a third engine.

    Matt: I suppose if we were experienced four-engined bomber pilots and there on the day, we'd probably understand why they shut down two engines on one side.
