The wings of a Handley-Page O/400 heavy bomber were recently recovered by the RAF Museum Cosford, who was alerted by email that the wings of a World War Two bomber were being used to support the roof of a garage that was scheduled for demolition.

Personnel from the museum quickly realised that the wings were built with techniques dating from World War One and established that they belonged to a Handley-Page O/400 heavy bomber. They have been recovered and added to the museum’s collections.
