Vickers Wellington Mk.IC twin-engine medium bomber (Luftwaffe) The Vickers Wellington was the most widely produced British bomber, with a total of 11,461 machines built. Wellingtons were used from September 1939 on as long-distance scouts and day/night bombers. Beginning in early 1940, due to their low effectiveness, they were used only at night. From 1942-43, the Wellington was the main aircraft used by the Royal Air Force's Bomber Command. A Wellington Mk.IC bomber became a German trophy in the winter of 1941. On the night of February 6, 1941, the Wellington Mk.IC (No. RAF L7842) belonging to No. 311 (Czechoslovakian) Squadron RAF flew a sortie to bomb a target in the area of Boulogne, France. During the sortie, the aircraft had to perform a forced landing (either due to an accident or under the compulsion of the Germans) and thus passed undamaged to the enemy. The whole Czechoslovakian crew was taken prisoner. The bomber was ferried from the landing site to the Luftwaffe's Test Facility at Rechlin, where it underwent a full series of flight tests. The aircraft then obtained the German code T+KX and was operated in 1941 with 2./Versuchsverband OKL, where various captured aircraft were in service. One of the members of the Wellington Mk.IC (L7842) crew, Flight Lieutenant Ernst Valenta, took part in the so-called "Great Escape" made by Allied Air Force pilots from Stalag Luft III, a German prisoner-of-war camp in Poland, on March 24, 1944. He was captured by the Germans and executed by shooting on March 31, 1944.
