Want the rare Blackburn Beverley?

19 September 2020

Sadly, the Fort Paull Museum (near Hull UK) will not reopen and its possessions are now on auction. This auction includes the rare extant Blackburn Beverley—an immense wing, four radial engine, fixed landing gear behemoth. The RAF’s paratroop/cargo delivery aircraft of the early Cold War.

It is written about very well by Ross Sharp in this post on his Shortfinals blog.

The BBC article on the Ft. Paull closing as well as the Beverley is here.

Thanks to Terry for the news leading to the BBC report as well as Ross for his prescient write-up.
