Bristol Blenheim IV (1939)

Bristol Blenheim IV (1939)

Back to the story

G2068. A Bristol Blenheim in 1939, these fighter/Bombers constituted the major bulk of RAF Bomber Command at the outbreak of war, mainly due to forward thinking individuals like Lord Rothermere, Winston Churchill and several others who realised the real enormity of the threat posed by Germany and its allies during the 1930's. These aircraft, although not as good as had been hoped for still gave a good account of themselves until further aircraft came along to join them.
