The RAAF's last four Beaufighters gathered at what is believed to be RAAF Richmond where 30 (Target Towing) Sqn was based. In early 1956 the aircraft were ferried to Tocumwal. Three were scrapped there but the second aircraft in this line-up, A8-328, was donated to the Lord Mayor's camp for children at Portsea, Victoria from where it was rescued in 1962 and preserved.

One of six Beaufighters bought by Fairey Aviation for overhaul and resale. Fairey's working party has checked the engines and deleted the RAF serial before ferrying to Ringway. The a/c became G-AJMB/JMG and four were sold to Israel. G-AJMF remained in a hangar at Ringway until it was scrapped in August 1949.

Even just building Aifix models of the beaufighter as a kid I thought the type was menacing. Those huge engines meant it could carry a formidable armament turning the type into a very effective night-fighter or ground-attack aircraft. In total 5562 Beaufighters were built serving with 52 operational RAF Squadrons, indeed the last flight was not until 1960 at RAF Seletar. Although displayed with D-day stripes this airframe never flew with the RAF, rather served with the Portuguese Navy as BF-13.

The Beaufighter was one of the most significant British aircraft of the middle years of the Second World War. It was a very effective ground-attack aircraft and night fighter. After the War it was used by Coastal Command for shipping protection. This aircraft previously served with the Portuguese Navy as BF-13.

Hardly beautiful, the Beaufighter was developed from the Beaufort torpedo bomber. In WWII it was used at first as a night fighter at then as a long-range strike fighter, especially against Axis shipping.
