    Default operational range of Hampden , the Beaufort, the Wellington and the Swordfish

    Can anyone tell me the maximum operational range for these aircraft when carrying a mine/mines and the source of any such information?

    Dear Barnsley
    Although most of the Hampden gardening missions were in areas in the Baltic, North Sea and near Brest etc. the maximum range for a bombing mission was probably Berlin. The trips to Russia were designated as one way trips.
    Hope this helps.
