We have to remember that of all those thousands of Lancaster bombers that flew missions during the war only half of them returned.

They've put a fresh one on the pillar box on Post Office corner as well, It's the head of a soldier wearing a tin hat.
We used to see what I now know to be prototype Avro bombers flying about during the war and immediately after as Avro's base at Woodford aerodrome was just South of Stockport centre. I've always thought I saw one that had a jet engine in place of one of the Merlins.... But I'm not sure about that.
