    Default Armstrong Whitworth AW38 Whitley Bomber

    Totally Fictional, I attached it to 223 Squadron for desert patrols, I am using her as an IA but as you see she flies nose down attitude, I know some do fly like that but I'm not keen on it, never seems to look right lol.

    I have to say that I am very familiar with WWII aircraft but I have never seen that one before. Nice paint and shots.

    After WW2 some of them were converted to freighters for British Airways.

    Red face Delighted Newbie

    Nice seeing shots of the Whitley bomber. My father (still alive at 99) talks often of his Whitley pilot days in the RAF in WW2. In 1941 he was the copilot in a sortie over Germany when they ditched in the North Sea. Although all 5 crew survived the ditching the cold November weather took its toll and my father was the only one found alive in the dinghy on the third day.
    Question: Is there a flight sim for the Whitley? My father would be delighted to see a flying Whitley again!
