About This File
8 Squadron, Egyptian Air Force (Inchas) 1956
This is mini-mod with a set of decals and a repaint of the upper surfaces of the original Lancaster skin by Gramps. All credit for the rest of the skin goes to him.
The EAF had 10 Lancasters at the beginning of the Suez Crisis. Most were caught on the ground and destroyed by FAA Seahawks.
Weapons loadout has been changed to WP and the guns changed to 50 cal. The original aircraft were supplied without guns and the Egyptians scrounged weapons off surplus WWII aircraft. While I can't change the model to reflect the fact that there were only two 50 cals in the rear turret, I have de-gunned it.
