Bristol Bolingbroke

(Umeyou Photo)
Fairchild Bolingbroke Mk. IV, RCAF (Serial No. 9118), coded BK-V, No. 115 (Bomber Reconnaissance) Squadron, Patricia Bay, British Columbia, 1942.

The Bristol Fairchild Bolingbroke was a maritime patrol aircraft and trainer used by the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War. Built by Fairchild-Canada, it was a license-built version of the Bristol Blenheim Mk IV bomber.

In 1935, the British Air Ministry issued Specification G.24/35 to procure a coastal reconnaissance/light bomber to replace the Avro Anson. Bristol proposed the Type 149, based on its Blenheim Mk I, with Bristol Aquila engines to give greater range. While the Air Ministry rejected this proposal, a Blenheim Mk I, retaining its Mercury VIII engines, was converted as a Type 149 (Blenheim Mk III) for the general reconnaissance role.The nose was lengthened to provide more room for the bombardier, with the upper left surface of the nose being scooped out to maintain pilot visibility during takeoff and landing.

The longer range also fulfilled a Canadian requirement for a maritime patrol aircraft. Consequently, Fairchild Aircraft Ltd. (Canada) of Quebec started production of the Blenheim Mk IV as the Bolingbroke (the originally intended name for the Blenheim IV). This type was nicknamed the "Bolly". After a small run of aircraft constructed to British specifications, as the Bolingbroke Mk I, Fairchild switched production to the Bolingbroke Mk IV with Canadian and American instruments and equipment. These versions also included anti-icing boots and a dinghy. One of the early Mk IV variants was the Bolingbroke Mk IVW which was powered by two 825 hp (615 kW) Pratt & Whitney SB4G Twin Wasp Junior engines. Incapable of maintaining altitude on one engine, the normal bomb load was reduced to 500 pounds on these aircraft to compensate for the low engine power. The most-produced variant was the Bolingbroke Mk IVT trainer, of which 457 were completed. A total of 626 Bolingbrokes were produced. Wikipedia

RCAF pilot seriously injured while exiting the aircraft on the ground, other 3 occupants not injured. As a result of this accident the overhaul of the fuel valve in question at 1,000 operating hours was changed to an inspection every 40 hours, plus complete replacement of the valve at 1,000 operating hours.

On 1942-11-07, S/L A. Ross Dawson, the Technical Officer in Charge of the servicing squadron at the RCAF No.4 B&G School Fingal Ontario, needed to test heat modifications on a new carburettor. The carburettor was fitted on Bolingbroke #9951 and, as he wrote to his mother on November 8,The idea was to go up and take a lot of instrument readings at every two thousand feet altitude. We kept going up higher and higher to get colder temperature readings.

Ross Dawson with Bolingbroke 1942

Of course, being a crew of guys in their young 20s, it did not end there. We decided that while we were up there we would see how high the plane would go. We broke the existing altitude record on this station by reaching 18,700 feet or over 3 1/2 miles straight up. There is a regulation in the Air Force which says that you are not to go higher than 15,000 feet without oxygen equipment but of course we did not have any so we could not stand to go up any further. We were getting pretty dopey as it was from lack of oxygen so I guess it was just as well.

It is a very peculiar feeling you get at that height. At about 15,000 feet it is sort of exhilarating & one starts to act as if he had a couple of drinks too many. Then as you go higher your head starts to reel, your ears sing & you can not focus your eyes on anything without great concentration. Finally you are breathing about twice as fast as normal and any movement you make takes real effort to get your muscles to work.

I kept on taking the readings I was supposed to right up to 18,000 feet but after that it gradually petered off until I finally just wrote down our final altitude & then had to quit. I must show you the sheet I had when I get home. At that height we were down near Detroit by this time we could see across Lake Erie as well as the Detroit & St. Clair Rivers, Lake St. Clair & well out into Lake Huron so it was quite a view. When we finally started to come down we were so intent on getting a good lung full of air that we came down too quickly & got our ears well plugged so we had to climb up from about 10,000 to 15,000 feet again to equalise the pressures for fear we would burst our eardrums. I thought the sides of my head were coming off & it was painful! However by hollering loudly & blowing etc. we finally got equalized & came on down. It was pretty cold -10 below zero but not really as bad as I expected since it was quite a warm day for this time of year. Another thing too your lips & fingernails turn a nice blue colour, why I do not know. However it gives quite a peculiar effect.

5 B&GS Category A damage on 8 February 1943, 2.4 miles south-west of Wynard, Saskatchewan. Starboard engine failed, and part of starboard nacelle fairing became detached. Pilot reported he needed to descend rapidly to maintain flying speed. Several similar accidents prior to this were attributed to overstressing the aircraft, which then resulted in greatly increased drag with the fairing missing. Aircraft severely damaged in resulting forced landing. WO2 G. Smith and two of three RAF LAC trainees, K. Holmes and T.Hyslop, were uninjured, while the third, J. Harlow, was injured.
