Vickers Wellington DWI at RAF Ismailia

Vickers Wellington DWI at RAF Ismailia

Here we see a Vickers Wellington DWI, a version of the aircraft that was equipped with a ring shaped electro magnet that was used to detonate magnetic mines, one of Germany's secret weapons at the start of the Second World War. Many thanks to Dr Jerry Hart for sending us this photo, which was taken at RAF Ismailia, where his father was based.
