As interesting Factoid; a few Lancs were converted to "airliner' immediately after the war
The amazing thing was these were 11 passenger planes.
Kinda puts these into perspective...even against a contemporary Dakota/C3

I forwarded this to a close friend, a fellow with whom I flew "night mail" in small planes many, many years ago.This was his response (name redacted to preserve privacy);
"Yeah, and then there is Xxxx "Stinky" Xxxxx's solution. Take a dump into one of your IFR charts, wrap it up, and throw it out the window of a Piper Aztec. Unfortunately for Xxxx, and especially the line boy, the chart and it's contents wrapped itself around the horizontal stabilizer, and then froze solid, so that it was still there as he taxied in. It drew quite a crowd until we found out what it was."
