    The Vickers Wellington medium bomber entered service with the RAF in 1938. It was one of very few aircraft to use geodetic construction - which meant it was lighter and stronger than similar bombers.

    There were many versions of the Wellington but the bulk of the production were Mk IC and Mk III and although it was phased out over the course of the war, production continued until 1945 with over 11,000 made.

    The Wellington was armed with up 6-8 x 7.7mm machine guns and carried a 4,500 lb bomb load.

    This example is a Wellington Mk XIII of 458 Squadron RAAF 1943.
