More Description


This is the story of how a group of enthusiasts spent 12 years painstakingly restoring a Blenheim to flying condition, only to see it destroyed in a crash shortly after its maiden flight. Incredibly, the team started again with another derelict airframe, determined to put a second Blenheim back in the skies. Britain First was the name of the prototype Blenheim of 1935. The restorations were a tribute to the brave men who flew the Blenheim in all roles and on all fronts in the early years of the war.
