    Default Hadley Page Hampden Bomber

    This is not my paint, it is available in the library by Edward Cook.

    A little about the aircraft:
    Handley Page Hampden Mk.I P1333 (EA-F) of 49 Squadron, RAF Scampton. Lost on combat operations on 17/8/1940 when crash-landed on returning from a raid on Merseburg, Germany. Took off from RAF Scampton at 22:30 on 16/8/40, and came down at Alphen, Noord-Brabant, near Breda, Netherlands at 03:30 LT. All four crew on board survived, and were taken as PoWs:

    Pilot Sgt. M.G.P Stretton RAF Survived POW
    Navigator Sgt. C.H. Butcher RAF Survived POW
    W/Op AG AC.2 F.H. Lindesay RAF Survived POW
    W/Op AG Sgt. K.N. Farrow RAF Survived POW

    Ah! That one is great! It's the 'Flying suitcase!' I've been looking for it since a while. Should I find it here it will soon appear like a part of my WW2 collection!

    Hence the 'Flying suitcase'. In the USSR, they kept some from the time of the Murmansk convoys, as they called it the 'balalaika'
    On the other hand, looks like I didn't find any for FSX!
