    Thanks. Nice clear LIFE pics. On the second one I see the aircraft are Manchesters. The upper surface of the Manchester's wing in the foreground looks very smooth. Were the wing skins of the Manchester riveted with countersunk rivets or not has been my remaining question for years.

    Yeah. Thanks. Indeed the Manchester was a type in advanced design for the time. Then, at what timing the shift from flush rivet to round head rivet was made (on the Lancaster) could be the next question.

    Please look at the drawing below; this is from a set of Lancaster drawings I purchased two years ago. The title on the upper left corner denotes "Manchester." Also note the mini-sized canopy on the lower diagram.

    Flght Magazine; yes please!
    BTW I want to know diameter of Lancaster propeller. I once used a pic similar to the 13th pic to deduce the size of the DH propeler.

    Nice pic. Must be 1978 or later, as PA474 didn't have the mid-upper turret fitted until March 1978. It's before 1982 though, as she still caries 44 Sqn markings in that shot.
