Lancaster(?) Wings
When I was a child I remember a friend of my father describing a flight he took as a Flight Engineer in what may have been a Lancaster/Halifax. The airframe was to be over stressed in order to reveal causes of failures in the wing structure. The airfield was a company field somewhere just to the north Of London.
Has anyone ever heard/read of such a trial?
