A Two-Year

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.
