The Kent Battle of Britain Museum welcomes a rare Bristol Blenheim

Blenheim

The rare Bristol Blenheim aircraft has been moved from Duxford Airfield in Cambridgeshire to the Kent Battle of Britain Museum in Hawkinge.

The project they have acquired is the left-over parts from the Bristol 149 Bolingbroke 9893 (rear fuselage), the wings in the project are from the first Blenheim to fly (G-MKIV) which suffered a forced landing shortly after returning to flight by Aircraft Restorations Co at Duxford. The aircraft will be restored as a Blenheim Mk IV with the long nose. The nose itself will be arriving from Canada in the next few months.
