Going to do what I do best I think and use pictures and not words mostly...

I am trying to get a reasonably accurate plan view of each bomb bay - not detailed, but good enough to show where and what bomb loads were typical. I am aiming (haha) for 5 examples for each of the main heavy bombers - with 10+ for the Lancaster as it's a bit of a special case... ;)

So here goes:

Avro Lancaster:

Load 1: 4 x 250 lb Spot Fire bombs + 2 x 1,000 lb MC bombs + 10 x 500 lb MC bombs
