Airspeed Oxford at Duxford
The Oxford saw widespread use for training British Commonwealth aircrews in navigation, radio-operating, bombing and gunnery roles throughout the Second World War. This particular Oxford [V3388, CAA registration G-AHTW] was the last one to fly. LinkExternal link
Airspeed Limited, the company that designed the Oxford, was established by Neville Shute Norway and A.H.Tiltman in 1931. The former, an aeronautical engineer, using his two Christian names as a pen-name, wrote, amongst other books, 'No Highway', which foretold the problems of metal fatigue which were the cause of the early Comet crashes.
