Last British Wellington bomber, undergoing final stage of restoration work, could be used to honour Czechoslovak WW II airmen

Public broadcaster Czech Radio has backed in initiative for a Vickers
Wellington bomber undergoing restoration work in Great Britain to feature
the markings of the Czechoslovak 311th squadron which flew with that type
of RAF bomber in World War II. Czech Radio’s correspondent in London,
Jiří Hošek, first learned of the reconstruction project last autumn, and
came forward with the idea. What are the chances the plane could feature
the colours of the 311th? And what is the aircraft’s place in
Czechoslovak military history? Find out in today’s edition.
