Back to the story

These aircraft heralded a new breed of machine which were not only was as fast as most current fighters but could also carry a meaningful payload as well as defensive armament. The aircraft were also equiped with good navigation aids and normally carried a crew of three. They went into squadron service in 1937/8 and became the main aircraft of Bomber Command by the outbreak of war.
