HMS Lancaster F229
HMS Lancaster (F229) is a 'Duke' Class Type 23 frigate of the Royal Navy. Lancaster was originally given the pennant number F232, until it was realised that in the Royal Navy, form number 232 is the official report for ships that have run aground. It is quite common when she has returned from long operations that she is flown over by the only remaining airworthy Avro Lancaster bomber, part of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight based at RAF Coningsby.
