  1. Thanks for the link. It is more than a little interesting.

  2. Thanks for the link, great story. Sad to learn about the fate of the Blenhiems and I'm sure other classics that were scrapped, Halifax, Manchesters, Wellingtons, etc. Hope that they will document the restoration of this historic Lt bomber, extremely rare plane.


  3. Thanks for that George,I always liked the look of the later Blenhiems.

  4. Great bit of info George. Very interesting. The Museum of Flight near Edinburgh has one of these, which last time I saw it, was about 70 per cent restored. Blenhiems/Bolinbrooks were virtually identical. As to Chucks comments I can say that a whole squadron of factory fresh Halifax's were scrapped at RAF Brackla in 1945(now the site of a Whisky Distillery) , which is a stones throw from where I live. It is thought the broken up airframes were buried at an old quarry site near the airfield.

  5. I read this article on the news site, I just hope that it can be restored to it`s former glory. Too many artifacts from WW2 and earlier have been lost.

  6. Hi,

    Thank you very much for this interesting link.

    Best regards, Eric
