Bristol Blenheim Mk I - the Bomb Bay
Picture of the bomb bay of a Bristol Blenheim Mk I being loaded with bombs. Whatever their failings as bombers, the Blenheims were at least easier to arm than the later heavy bombers!
Blenheim Squadrons of World War Two, Jon Lake.
This book looks at the entire RAF service career of the Bristol Blenheim, from its debut as a promising fast bomber, through the deadly disillusionment of the blitzkrieg, on to its work in the Middle East and Mediterranean, where the aircraft found a new lease of life. Lake also looks at the use of the Blenheim as an interim fighter aircraft and its use by Coastal Command.
