Until the advent of the ‘heavies’ - the  Stirling, Halifax and Lancaster - the Wellington bore the brunt of Bomber Command’s onslaught on occupied Europe. Built using the revolutionary geodetic construction developed by Barnes Wallis, the Wellington developed a reputation for being able to take a lot of punishment and still bring crews home. 

Wellingtons served widely, becoming workhorses for the Operational Training Units, sub-hunters for Coastal Command, transports and test-beds and were even used as low-flying minesweepers! Postwar the Wellington served on overseas and as a crew-trainer for the RAF, finally retiring in the mid-1950s. 


Enthusiasts the world over have a great respect for the Wellington ‑ this 100-page special magazine  from the team behind FlyPast magazine provides a much sought-after tribute to an incredible warplane.


Features include:

  • Barnes Wallis and the birth of the Wellington
  • Detailed directories of RAF and Commonwealth front-line squadrons and support units from the UK to the Far East
  • Breakdown of each and every variant and the many incredible roles the Wellington carried out
  • Bomber Command’s stalwart, from early disasters to the ‘Thousand Bomber’ raids
  • Colour schemes, markings and squadron heraldry

And much more!
