Honouring the Lancaster Bomber, this painting depicts No. 419 Squadron Lancaster KB-732 about to touch down at Middleton-St. George following its last operation of the war. VR-X completed 84 operations against the enemy, more than any other Canadian built Lancaster. As well, it destroyed two enemy fighters. The painting was unveiled on 18 August, 2001 by Lt. Col. Steve Hill, Commanding Officer No. 419 Squadron, and Howard Witwer, a 419 Squadron pilot who flew three operations in VR-X during World War II.
