Bristol Beaufort Walkaround Gallery

I’ve kind of gone to town on this Beaufort walkaround. We had just aquired it from Ralph Cusack in Brisbane, who is rebuilding a Beaufort to flying condition, and I got a bit excited. I was going to draw a set of illustrations but I haven’t got around to it yet.

The RAAF operated 700 Australian-built Beaforts of various marks. It was a significant milestone in Australian aviation as we had no local aircraft manufacturing capability prior to the Beaufort. An entire manufacturing industry sprang up to make the components and assemble the airframes.

There are only a handful of Beauforts left in the world and I believe Ralph’s will be the only flier.
