Great video from the inside of a Lancaster bomber

This is a neat video of an actual Lancaster bomber flying over Toronto and Niagara Falls.

Very cool.

wow I would love to get the oppurtunity to go up in something like that one day...and to think planes like that were being made in the 40's. When he's up in the gun turret it really gives you a glimpse of what people saw while these were in service. Image seeing another plane shooting it's .50 cals at you from there.

Pilot made a really steep bank towards the end of the video...so sweet

Yep, cool vintage plane.

I was surprised how much ya could see from the glass turrets.

And just think those planes were crewed by 18-20 year old kids during the war!
