Product Description

Corgi AA32618 Avro Lancaster B MkI LM220, RAF 9 Sqn ‘Getting Younger Everyday’ SPECIAL EDITION NEW TOOLING
As the war neared its end the Germans were concealing more and more of their important facilities underground in heavily fortified and defended positions with targets such as U-boat pens being protected by thick concrete roofs.

As early as 1941 the great engineer Barnes Wallis had begun design on a bomb that would be able to penetrate deep underground and then explode. He called it his ‘Earthquake’ bomb, this later became the prototype of the ‘Tallboy’ bomb. Weighing 12,000lbs, the Tallboys were first used against the Saumur railway tunnel in Western France and went on to prove their effectiveness against U-Boat pens, bunkers and the famous German battleship Tirpitz. This particular machine belonged to 9 Squadron RAF, one of only two squadrons that dropped Tallboys. On the night of the 11th January 1945 this machine helped penetrate 3.5m of concrete above the U-Boat pens at Bergen, destroying the intended target.
