An oldie, and I have reminded you before, but maybe some new ones has missed these amazing, staggering live recordings from inside Lancaster bombers during combat missions

The link gets screwed so copy and paste the url

Good stuff - especially when it gets a bit hairy and the B.B.C. pronounciation briefly goes out of the window.

Check out the rest of the site - 'Charlie and his orchestra' are an unintenional hoot.

Great site, Orheim!
I'm also a keen collector of old wartime music and sound files, some good stuff here!
Cheers m8!

I don't know about the first two recordings, but I've heard the third, and it's a studio recording by the BBC. It's not an actual mission, you can easily tell, no way will you hear the rear gun on the interphone, especially without the rear gunners mic being keyed.

Also on the final bomb run any real bomber crew will concentrate on getting the bombing done, and not shift all focus on a fighter already going down.
