From a total of over 7,300 Lancasters produced during WWII only 35 completed more that 100 combat missions. The highest number (140) was achieved by ED888, yet she was tragically not selected for preservation and scrapped during Jan. 1947. The venerable R5868 flew 137 combat missions making her the most successful Lancaster still extant.
