Object Description

This aircraft is a post-war produced example of the Second World War torpedo bomber used by the United States Navy and later the Royal Navy under the lend-lease scheme. The aircraft was restored to represent the Avenger President George Bush flew during the war and remains in this scheme, despite not being built until 1950. While in service it served with the Royal Canadian Navy supporting NATO anti-submarine activities. IWM is reviewing its collection, and has identified that this object is no longer required as it does not meet our purpose.
