Celebrating the manufacture of the wartime Boulton Paul Defiant night fighter nearby in Pendeford.

The Defiant was built to meet an RAF specification for a 'turret' fighter to intercept formations of unescorted bombers. The weight of the turret and additional crewman together with minimal front armament left the plane vulnerable to frontal attack from the newer fighters.
