In 1952, the Blackburn Beverley rolled off the production line in Brough East Yorkshire. A total of 49 were built for the RAF. Only one remains - the XB259. Help us save this historic icon of the skies and restore it for future generations.SUPPORT THE PROJECT
Condor Aviation is embarking on a two-year restoration project to bring the Blackburn Beverley X-259 back to its former glory. The last of its kind, the Blackburn Beverley was one of the largest planes of its time, with a wingspan of nearly 50 metres and a fuselage capable of carrying more than 30tonnes of supplies.
Used across Asia and Africa on a range of humanitarian missions, the Blackburn Beverley has had an esteemed military career. We’ve managed to find some cine reel footage of the plane in action - view it here. If you’d like to see more, join the Beverley Rivet Club and have access to more than 160 films spanning from 1949 to 1975.SEE MORE HISTORY
