Lancaster Oily Mug
Designed to evoke the iconic Lancaster Bomber back from flight and covered in oil the Lancaster Oily Mug is an eye catching addition to the daily brew.
The Avro Lancaster is a British four-engined Second World War heavy bomber designed and manufactured by Avro. The Lancaster was designed by Roy Chadwick and powered predominantly by four Rolls-Royce Merlins engines. It first saw service with RAF Bomber Command in 1942 and as the strategic bombing offensive over Europe gathered momentum, it was the main aircraft for the night-time bombing campaigns that followed. As increasing numbers of the type were produced, it became the principal heavy bomber used by the RAF. A long, unobstructed bomb bay meant that the Lancaster could take the largest bombs used by the RAF, including the 4,000 lb (1,800 kg), 8,000 lb (3,600 kg) and 12,000 lb (5,400 kg) blockbusters, loads often supplemented with smaller bombs or incendiaries. The "Lanc", as it was known colloquially, became one of the most heavily used of the Second World War night bombers, delivering 608,612 long tons of bombs in 156,000 missions. The versatility of the Lancaster was such that it was chosen to equip 617 Squadron and was modified to carry the Upkeep "Bouncing bomb" designed by Barnes Wallis for Operation Chastise, the attack on German Ruhr valley dams.
Made from ceramic with a high gloss finish the mugs like the Lancaster will withstand many years of service.
A great gift for any aviation fan. One of a set of oily aviation mugs, including Mustang, Hurricane and Spitfire.
The mugs are packed in a plain white box making them easier to gift wrap.
