in my father's life, apart from the other things
like tiger moths and ants and that.
My father flew various Wellingtons
all throughout the war so the Wellington
is my passion.
And as you probably know there are some
11,462 Wellingtons were built.
Sadly, we've only got two left now.
One, for Robert, is kept at the Brooklyn's Museum.
That was what's known as Lochness Wellington
as it was a time expired, i.e. it was rather
worn out from the earlier battles
so it was then used in a training aircraft.
It came down onto a frozen Lochness
and sank to the bottom.
And then in I think about 20-30 years ago
the Heriot-Watt University raised it up
and it's now down there.
And then of course you had my Wellington,
as I call it, here at Hendon although
it's now with you at Cosford moment being revamped.
And that was a T10, a marker, the last ones
and I believe as well it took part in the
black and white film on "The Dam Busters".
You actually see it being flown there
that was the game.
Sadly there's only two Wellingtons we've got left now.
So I want to look forward to the return
of the Wellington to Hendon I hope.
