    Dear Mr. Emery

    I am a great warbird enthusiast. As second "hobby" I help to mod the airwar simulation IL-2. This simulation is a platform for hundreds of "warbird crazy" people allover the world.

    I am looking desperately for Informations about the Blenheim IVF. Because the 254 Squadron flew this plane during the war perhaps here I can find the informations I am looking for.

    In one of my books about the Blenheim I read that during the conversion from Blenheim IV to Blenheim IVF - standard: a 4 machinegun - belly pack and a reflexsight was built in.

    The problem is the reflexsight. I did not find any Image of this sight or of an Blenheim IVF-cockpit ! Was a reflexsight even built in or did the fighter use the primitive mechanical sight of the bomber-version ???? (perhaps my informations are wrong)

    If a reflexsight was built in: Do You have any Informations or even pictures of a cokpit (with sight) or how this sight was built in this cockpit (location)


    I would be very lucky if You would find anything in Your archive



    Sincerely Yours


    Dr. med. Michael Uth
