Notes for the iconic Lancaster Aircraft, AVRO Type '683' MK.I & III.  Published by A.V.Roe & Co. Ltd., Manchester, March 1944.  Card covers, 14.5 x 22.5cm.  Approximately 35p plus around 13 pullout diagrams/charts at the back.  The book covers fuel and oil systems; aeroplane controls; engine controls; handling; operating data; emergency procedures etc. The diagrams include the instrument panel, hydraulics, fuel system, turret hydraulics etc.  Each copy was marked as 'Confidential', covered by the official secrets act and had an individual reference number, 6817 in this case.  The cover is sound but soiled, creased, and dog-eared at the edges.  The pages are generally good though a little yellowed.   Some minor damage to the pullout charts where folded but nothing serious and easily repaired with archival tape if required.  Named to L. W. Rodgers, 1850322.  Excellent research material.  Stock code P25397.
