In this new series of tapes about the twin engine Blenheim, we have edited
together recordings of memories recalled by members of air and ground crews who
served in Bleheim squadrons, the majority of which have never been seen before.
These, together with contributions from others associated with the aircraft and
historians who have written about it, give a vivid picture of those early days
of the war and before, when Blenheims were in Britain`s first line of defence.
July 1935 Lord Rothermere presented the Bristol type 142 "Britain First" to the nation. It became the prototype for the Bleheim.
March 1937 The first short nose Blenheims where delivered to RAF.
August 1939 Blenheims where the first aircraft in the world to be fitted with air-to-air Radar.
September 1939 At the out-break of the Second World War, there were more Blenheims in the first line than any other aircraft.
Blenheims where the only aircraft to fly in every command-fighter, bomber, coastal , army co-operation and training.
