Synopsis: DISC 1 VICKERS WELLINGTON When it entered service in 1938, the twin-engined Vickers Wellington began an operational career that spanned the whole of the Second World War. Rugged and reliable, it was operated by Bomber Command, Coastal Command and Transport Command, possessing a level of versatility second to none, serving in almost every theatre of War.

This most successful of all World War II 'heavies' could carry more than it's own weight in bomb load, including the 22,000 pound Tallboy - the biggest conventional weapon ever made.
