Photo Comment

The Bolingbroke IV was a Canadian licence built version of the Blenheim IV. This example was delivered to the RCAF in 1942 and served as a gunnery and bombing instructional airframe until struck off charge in 1946. She arrived in the UK during 1968 and underwent restoration before going on display at the RAF Museum in 1978.
