The Armstrong Whitworth Whitley was a British twin engined medium bomber, one of the three types of twin engined bomber in service with the RAF at the outbreak of World War II and was part of the first bombing raid over Germany. The aircraft was withdrawn from front line bomber service in 1942 but remained in service as a maritime reconnaissance aircraft with Coastal Command throughout the war and also served as a glider-tug, trainer and transport aircraft. Versions of the aircraft were also used by British Overseas Airways Corporation as a civilian freighter.

In total 1,814 Whitley’s were built.
