Re: Lockheed Ventura four gun turret

Out of interest does anyone know if Lockheed Venturas were flown to the UK from the USA or where only shipped?

Re: Lockheed Ventura four gun turret

Some were ferried as this one was apparently lost in Newfoundland before the planned ferry flight.

This article has a photo of Liberators, Mitchells and Venturas at Doval, Quebec before starting the journey overseas.

Re: Lockheed Ventura four gun turret

Larry,

I presume that you are a member of A-B, in which case if you go into Peter Berry/Tom Macfadyen's North Atlantic ferry files on the AB-IX website you will find details of many Ventura transatlantic ferry flights.
