Aeroplane identification poster, 1943
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.
Designed by short brothers, this was the raf’s first four-engined bomber entering service in 1941. Pilots liked its handling characteristics but the altitude ceiling was a matter of criticism and was relegated to second-line duties in 1943 when the halifax and lancaster were available in sufficient numbers. It was subsequently used for mining harbours, as a glider tug and a supply aircraft.
