AN extremely rare Second World War bomber is due to fly over Warrington.

There are only two airworthy Lancaster Bombers remaining in the world – and you will be able to see one in the sky above the town.

It will be making a flying visit as part of Lymm Historic Transport Day celebrations.

The Avro Lancaster is the most famous and successful Royal Air Force heavy bomber of the Second World War.

For the last three years of the war, it was the main heavy bomber used by Bomber Command to take the war to the heartland of Nazi Germany.

There are only two airworthy Lancasters left in the world, of 7,377 that were built.

Lymm Historic Transport Day was born in 2013, and since then it has been showcasing fantastic vehicles, raising money for charity and bringing people together for a brilliant day out.

The day is run entirely by a committee of dedicated volunteers, as well as some 120 volunteers on the day itself.

Costs of the event are raised entirely from ticket sales and sponsorship, and after costs, all the profits are donated to local good causes.

The committee said: “There are only two airworthy Lancaster Bombers left in the world.

“One of these iconic planes is in Canada. The other will be flying over Lymm on June 23 as part of Historic Transport Day.

“Two months to go, and it has suddenly got very exciting.”
