Durham Tees Valley Airport, United Kingdom
One of only two remaining flying Avro Lancaster bombers is prepared before leaving the hangar to be displayed as it visits Durham Tees Valley airport today.
The aircraft, 'Mynarski' is named after Pilot Officer Andrew Mynarski who flew with the Canadian Royal Air Force from the airport which was then called RAF Middleton St George.
Pilot Officer Mynarski was posthumously awarded a VC after giving his life while trying to save a colleague when their Lancaster was shot down in June 1944.
The famous World War Two aircraft is owned by the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum and is beginning a 2-week tour of the UK.
