Aircraft Identification Challange 235

Post by jamesinnewcastle »

Hi All

I don't normally do this sort of thing as I'm not into WW2 A/C as much as most here but I found a pic of this aircraft and found it really 'interesting'.

Probably you will all go 'oh yeah that one, obvious', but here it is anyway!

(Alan Davies has already guessed at 'Blue Whale' incidentally......)

Wellington V.

There is no paralell in warfare, to such courage and determination in the face of danger, over so long a period. Such devotion, should never be forgotten.

Ah yes - thanks Alan, a more considered response :) Googled Wellington Mk V and found the same image listed as a MkVI?

Hi

That didn't last long - I couldn't see any cockpit on the photo but I've Googled it too and have seen the tiny clear dome. Why is it this funny shape?

Ohh just spotted the SBA antenna!

Just wanted to refresh members that 'challenges' are to only be posted by the moderators and 'John L'.
This allows the forum to keep a balance in relation to other threads being posted and stops 'doubling up' of old challenges.

We thank James for his continued interest in the forum and ask if any members have a image worthy for a challenge, please email myself or 'PM' me.
Cheers
John
