Bravest of the brave
The impact of RAF Bomber Command during World War Two should never be underestimated. From beginning to end, it is a tale of courage against the odds. To mark the 85th anniversary of its formation, FlyPast presents a series of articles reflecting on the courage of the personnel who risked all, and the many and varied machines involved. We also take a short trip to Lincolnshire – ‘bomber county’ – to document a few of the sites that remain.

Classics – Vickers Wellington
