Avro York
The Avro
Avro
York was a British transport aircraft developed by Avro during the Second World War. The design was derived from the famed Avro
Avro
Lancaster heavy bomber that was being produced at the time for the Royal Air Force
Royal Air Force
(RAF); several sections of the York and Lancaster being identical. Due to priority being placed on the Lancaster instead, production of the York proceeded at a slow pace until 1944, after which a higher priority was placed upon transport aircraft. The York saw service in both military and civilian roles with various operators between 1943 and 1964. In civilian service, British South American Airways (BSAA) and British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) were the largest users of the type. In military service, large numbers of Yorks were used during the high-profile air-supply missions during the Berlin Blockade
