Ruhr Express

This large section of Avro Lancaster was made at the Victory aircraft factory in Malton Ontario Canada. There are multiple part numbers and inspectors stamps that confirm its identity. We imported it from Canada.

As a tribute to the Canadian built Lancasters - this piece has been painted as Ruhr Express, the name given to the first plane to leave the Victory Aircraft factory in 1943 and fly to Britain.

In the UK it flew with 405 squadron with the designation LQ-Q. Its first mission was to Berlin on 22 November 1943. In April 1944 she was transferred to 419 squadron as VR-Z and flew 47 mission before crashing. No loss of life.

The panel was part of the hydraulic system on a Lancaster and has a hatch which hinges open from the top, see original plans diagram. It has a plaque with the words "replacement sealing ring stored inside" and was located on the underside of the wing between the fuselage and inboard engine. The part numbers match with the original drawings and parts.

The hinge has the original 1940's wooden dowels.

The panel is 48cm high by 48cm wide with the additional section on the left that results in an overall width of 61cm and 5 cm deep.
