The last two airworthy WWII Lancaster Bombers reunited over England to make history in 2014. A war relic from Canada crossed the Atlantic to meet her counterpart in the UK and for the first time in 50 years two Lancasters shared the sky for a reunion tour. (IMDb synopsis)

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum Lancaster, VeRA, flew from Hamilton, Ontario to meet her British counterpart, Thumper, the only other airworthy Lancaster in the world, operated by the Royal Air Force in England. It was unlike any other mission this Lancaster and her flight crew had ever undertaken.

Watch first-hand accounts from people who were connected to the bomber during the war. Their stories will transport you back in time as they share their experiences during the Lancaster’s glory days. Reunion of Giants documents this historic mission as it unfolds, through the eyes of the flight crews and veterans—all part of the bombers’ history, including this new chapter as VeRA crosses the Atlantic.
