VICKERS WELLINGTON

$9.95

Title: Vickers Wellington

The Wellington Bomber was designed in the mid 1930’s and utilised the “geodetic” construction pioneered by Barnes Wallis. This construction was very strong and able to withstand significant damage but was also time-consuming to construct.

The type was widely used during the first two years of WW2 before being supplanted by larger four-engined aircraft such as the Avro Lancaster. The aircraft continued to serve as a Coastal patrol aircraft and training aircraft, and continued the latter role until 1953. Over 11,400 examples were built in total.

We offer two titles on the Vickers Wellington which contain the flight manuals (called Pilot’s Notes by the RAF) for most models of the Vickers Wellington plus the maintenance manual for the Wellington 1, and an interesting publication on the Hercules engine. The files have been copied from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages. Each title is US$9.95.
