My thanks to Roger Dunn and the MOD for supplying these images.Wikipedia for text.

The Avro Manchester Twin engined Heavy Bomber first flew on 25th July 1939 and entered Service in 1940.

Powered By 2 Rolls Royce Vulture I engines

The Manchester suffered appalling losses due to engine failures. However, the basic aircraft design was good and was developed into the 4 engined Lancaster

Some aircraft may appear identical but there are differences which will not be discernible from the image.
