THE WELLINGTON BOMBER STORY

THE WELLINGTON BOMBER STORY

DVD - When it entered service in 1938, the twin-engined Vickers Wellington began an operational career that spanned the whole of the Second World War. Rugged and reliable, it was operated by Bomber Command, Coastal Command and Transport Command, possessing a level of versatility second to none and serving in almost every theatre of war. By the autumn of 1945 nearly 11,500 had been built. As the last one rolled off the Vickers' production lines, the 'Wimpy', as it was affectionately known, had secured its place in history, as one of the truly great aircraft of the Second World War.

BOOK - The Vickers Wellington was a British twin-engine, long-range medium bomber, universally known as the 'Wimpy'. The only bomber in construction throughout the Second World War, the Wellington played a pivotal role in training and combat from its conception in the 1930s, through active service in the Far Eastern, Mediterranean and German arenas of conflict, until its final use by the RAF in 1953. This book follows the fascinating story of the much-loved and innovatively designed Wellington throughout its life, including many tales from the aircraft's years with Bomber Command. Illustrated with a wide selection of images, both colour and black and white, this book is a fitting tribute to a wonderful servant of the RAF.
