Handley Page Hampden bomber

This Handley-Page (aka the flying suitcase) was a clumsy aircraft. introduced in the late 1930s. Now on view at the Canadian Museum of Flight, this one crashed at Patricia Bay on Vancouver Island during torpedo dropping practice in 1942, but the crew survived. The RAF Museum in Cosford is restorating another Hampden. Below is a wooden model.
