The combination of the innovative geodetic lattice structure and traditional cloth covering earned the Wellington the nickname 'the basket weave bomber', but the unusual construction made it extremely resilient, able to keep flying despite sustaining substantial damage. This book, presented in the Haynes manual style, examines the famous Second World War aircraft's design construction and operation, with many technical illustrations and photographs, in particular using images of a recently renovated Mk1A.
