"Back Them Up! The Mighty Bombers of World War II" During the Second World War, bomber aircraft played a crucial role in shaping the outcome of battles. From the iconic RAF poster urging citizens to support their bombers, to the powerful Wellington and Armstrong Whitworth Whitley bombers that took to the skies in 1939, these war machines were instrumental in turning the tide of war. In 1944, the B-26 Marauder medium bomber joined forces with its allies, delivering devastating blows to enemy targets. As part of the Wings For Victory campaign, these bombers symbolized hope and resilience during challenging times. Across oceans, American B-17 bomber aircraft soared through California's skies from Salinas to protect freedom and democracy. Their cockpits became command centers for brave pilots who risked everything for their nations. Not only did countries like Australia contribute significantly with their four Royal Australian Air Force F-111 aircraft but also employed Vickers 417 Wellington III bombers under Bomber Command's guidance. These formidable machines struck fear into enemies' hearts while defending liberty. The Lancaster I (4-Merlin) bomber exemplified British engineering prowess as it roared across European skies during critical missions. Its power was matched only by its endurance and unwavering determination. Propaganda posters for the RAF showcased not just military might but also served as reminders that victory required collective effort on all fronts - both at home and abroad. Even torpedo-bombers such as Fairey Swordfish left an indelible mark on history when they bravely attacked enemy ships during WWII's darkest days in 1941. Decades later, intriguing stories emerged claiming that a World War Two bomber had been found on the moon – an extraordinary tale reported by Sunday Sport newspaper which captured imaginations worldwide. From rallying cries on posters to legendary aircraft soaring through hostile skies, these bombers embodied courage and sacrifice throughout one of humanity's darkest chapters.
