Watch the stirring trailer for the highly anticipated Lancaster

Our friends at Altitude have released the first trailer for Lancaster, a new feature documentary that’ll chronicle the iconic WWII aircraft.

Told through the words of the last surviving crew members, re-mastered archive material and extraordinary aerial footage, this is the story of the RAF’s last airworthy Lancaster. Made by the filmmakers behind the box office hits Spitfire and Armstrong, Lancaster is set for release in the UK & Ireland from 27 May, it’ll feature breathtaking aerial footage from the world’s top aviation photographer; John Dibbs, an original score from composer Chris Roe, all performed by the Central Band of the RAF.

Responsible for some of the most famous and infamous missions in WW2 history, from the Dambuster raids to the controversial bombing of Dresden, the Lancaster would help turn the tide of war. But there was a deadly price to be paid. 55,000 young men – half of all Bomber Command’s aircrew – died over Nazi occupied Europe. Their average age was just 22 – Check out the trailer now:

Lancaster promises to be an epic and poignant story of courage, fear, friendship and the moral complexities of war. Directed by David Fairhead and Ant Palmer, their joint interviews of 38 veterans form the emotional and deeply moving core of the film.

Historical consultant is Steve Darlow. The project is supported by the Team Lewis Foundation and Lincolnshire’s Lancaster Association.

Lancaster comes to UK and Irish cinemas from 28 May.
