Defiant Replica Leaves RAF Cosford

Defiant Replica Leaves RAF Cosford

A replica of the Boulton Paul Defiant bomber-destroyer aircraft has been loaded on two trucks as it leaves England’s RAF Cosford for a new home.

The craft, which took eight years and 50,000 man hours to construct, is the latest in a collection of planes and aircraft parts to be shipped out of Cosford to museums across the country.

The Boulton Paul Association, which built and restored the pieces over 20 years, was left devastated when the RAF Museum said it could no longer accommodate the original and replica pieces. But members were determined to save the collection and found museums willing to display them.
