    Default Wellington LB221

    Can anyone please help me....where and when was Wellington LB221 built? It was the very first Wellington my dad flew in! Also, there has been some discussion on these forums before about LB221. But there seems to be some confusion (maybe it's just me?) about the date when it was lost at sea. Can anyone confirm its fate, please. It was being used as a training aircraft when my dad went up in it (on a number of occasions) but I wonder if it ever saw operational service too?

    Hi,

    The answer to the first bit is Weybridge, built as a Mk VIII, and delivered from there sometime between 19/9/42 and 31/10/42.

    regards Peter
