description

The twin-engine Vickers Wellington was one of the outstanding RAF bomber aircraft of the Second World War, as well as a capable maritime patrol aircraft and submarine hunter with Coastal Command. Thanks largely to its unique geodetic construction, designed by Barnes Wallis, the Wellington was able to soak up an enormous amount of battle damage.

Contents:
● Introduction
● The Wellington Story
● The Wellington at War
● Anatomy of the Wellington
● Engines
● The Loch Ness Wellington
● The Crews View
● The Engineers View

Centrepiece of this manual is Wellington Mk Ia, R for Robert - one of only two surviving examples of the Wellington - which took part in the earliest RAF bombing operations of the Second World War. When the aircraft was transferred to an operational training unit it suffered engine failure on a training flight on New Year's Eve 1940 and was ditched into Loch Ness. R for Robert sank to the bottom of the loch where it remained until salvaged in 1985, in remarkably good condition. It was restored to display condition at the Brookands Museum, Weybridge.
