bombing speed Lancaster

Hello all,

Perhaps a silly question but I am looking for information about the average speed of Lancasters during a bomb run.

I know of course that loaded Lancasters flew slower during their climb after take off and faster if they had reached the ordered altitude but what was their speed during the bomb run? Perhaps someone has details from personal acccounts or other sources ?

Many thanks in advance! Best regards,

Marcel Hogenhuis
