The Vickers Wellington bomber was universally known as the 'Wimpy', after Popeye's hamburger-eating friend J Wellington Wimpy, and played a pivotal role in training and combat from the 1930s, through the war years, to its final use by the RAF in 1953. This compact review of the design and service history of this innovative and versatile plane is illustrated with a range of archive photographs.
