The Bristol Bolingbroke was a Canadian built version of the Bristol Blenheim Mk. IV bomber. The RCAF used the "Boley" during WW2 as a bomber trainer as well as front line defense on the west coast of Canada against potential Japanese incursions.
The Bolingbroke was essentially a straight copy of the Blenheim Mk. IV so all details are typical for both aircraft.The example in these photos is held by the Museum of Flight and Transportation in Langley, B.C.; while the cockpit photos are of the mock-up in the British Columbia Aviation Museum in Sydney, B.C.
