Vickers 290 Wellington 1A N2980 (1939), N2980 is the only surviving Brooklands-built Wellington. During a training flight on the 31st December 1940 she developed engine trouble and ditched into Loch Ness. She was rescued from Loch Ness in 1985 and is now displayed appropriately at The Brooklands museum. She is one of only two Wellingtons to survive, and the only one to serve as bomber, including The infamous Heligoland Bight raid on the 18th December 1939. Pics thanks to Frank Bell.
