And a nice shot of the sole Mk. 3 Lancaster in Canadian service EE182. It arrived here in 1944 for winterization trials and stayed on until March 1948 when it was scrapped. EE182 was widely viewed in wartime North America. When not flying in sub-arctic conditions, it was visiting Victory Aircraft or taking part in public relations flights. It occasionally flew to the United States on demonstration missions at major bases. Squadron Leader Stanley O. Partridge flew it through much of this phase of its career, and checked out 84 American service and civilian pilots on the type, even without dual controls.
