Blackburn Aircraft Company, Fairey Swordfish (Unknown)
Black & White imageUndated, This was one of the Blackburn Aircraft companys most famous planes, nick-named the 'string-bag'. It was a bi-plane constructed of fabric covered metal, a 3 man torpedo bomber serving as a general purpose aircraft for the Royal Navy. The wings folded for storage on aircraft carriers, offensive power consisted of mines, bombs, depth charges and torpedoes. A disadvantage was its slowness in avoiding anti-aircraft fire. Almost 1700 were built by Blackburn. In 1943 Marks II - IV had an enclosed cabin for deployment in Canada. Production, which had begun in April 1934, ceased in 1944. Four aircraft remain which are air-worthy, 2 in Britain and 2 in Canada. The number on the aircraft in view is H8158.
