Vickers Wellington, or the ‘Wimpy’
Today we’re looking at the Vickers Wellington, or the ‘Wimpy’ as most affectionately called it, the most mass-produced bomber to enter RAF service. From 1939 – 1942 it formed the backbone of RAF bomber command, and was often the only way that Britain could truly ‘take the fight to the enemy’. The Wellington is also well known for its unique way of being built using geodetic construction, a technique that was refined in Britain by engineer Barnes Wallis.
