Bristol Blenheim Mk IV

Bristol Blenheim Mk IV

Back to the story

G1152. The Type 149 Bristol Blenheim Mk IV fitted with two Mercury VIII radials dates originally from 1936. The type was so named following an unadopted bid for a general reconnaissance and coastal bomber and finally became a Blenheim with a 3 foot extension ahead of the pilot to accommodate a navigation and radio station. The outer wings contained extra fuel space to increase the range and it also had uprated undercarriage to cater for an AUW of 14,000 Lbs. Blenheim IV's were produced by many of the shadow factories and also under licence in Canada where it became known as a Bolingbroke.
