English: Lancaster B I R5868 "S-Sugar" is the oldest surviving Lancaster bomber aircraft from World War II. It originally served as "Q-Queenie" with No. 83 Squadron RAF from RAF Scampton and then as "S-Sugar" with No. 463 and No. 467 RAAF Squadrons from RAF Waddington. This aircraft was the first RAF heavy bomber to complete 100 operations (going on to fly 137 sorties). It is now on display at the RAF Museum, Hendon in 467 Sqn markings.
