About this item

US Naval Aviation Training Division
RAF Bristol Beaufighter World War 2 US airplane
Aeroplane identification poster, 1942
A particularly unusual style of aeroplane identification poster, owing to the very arty images. Most such posters rely on very plain silhouettes, this series – and we have several in this series (click here) – have a much more arty approach to the task with shading and an interesting angle view.
The Beaufighter is a multi-role aircraft conceived originally as a heavy fighter variant of the Bristol Beaufort. As an effective night fighter it came into service during the Battle of Britain, having the space for radar it became a highly effective night fighter. The de Havilland Mosquito, being somewhat faster, took over in the latter part of 1942. The Beaufighter saw service in all theatres during World War II, serving through to the Greek civil war in 1946. 5,928 were built but no flying examples exist today, although The Fighter Collection at Duxford is currently restoring an aircraft (made from multiple aircraft).
