§ 68. Mr. Langford-Holt
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how many Fairey Swordfish have been preserved for museum and exhibition purposes; and where these aircraft are now located.
One Swordfish aircraft complete with typical wartime equipment has been accepted by the Imperial War Museum, Lambeth Road, for preservation as a museum piece. Pending the com- 191W pletion of structural reconstruction of the museum, this aircraft is being stored at the Royal Naval Air Station, Stretton, Cheshire. Two other Swordfish aircraft are being held for exhibition purposes and are at present at the Royal Naval Air Station, Arbroath, Angus.
