About this product
- DescriptionOver sixty years ago, a new factory was built at Broughton to construct Wellington Bombers for the RAF's expansion and wartime needs. Situated near Chester, the factory has remained part of the British aviation industry while older, traditional sites have come and gone. Its history has been both varied and colourful and the aircraft the factory has produced have been world-rewned. From the wartime Wellingtons and Lancasters to the world's first jet airliner, the Comet, and the wings for the most successful airliners in service today, Broughton has always been at the forefront of aviation techlogy. Updated with new material relating to the current company overhaul and expansion following the success of the A380, Norman Barfield's book is a testament to the phemenal success of this Welsh factory and its successful conversion into a state of the art production facility today.
