Bristol Beaufort Mk.I

WWII British dominions Air Force

The Bristol Beaufort torpedo-bomber, which was widely used in the RAF Coastal Command, was also a part of the air units of the British Dominion countries. Thus, in August 1941, the 489th squadron was formed from pilots of the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF). They received several Bristol Beaufort Mk.I, which operated until the winter of 1942. In late 1941, 18 Beaufort Mk.I aircraft were received by the South African Air Force (SAAF) to protect the vital shipping lanes around the Cape of Good Hope. In the winter of 1942, two divisions were created in the SAAF – the 36th and 37th Coastal Flight, which included these aircraft. At first, they performed patrol functions and later were involved in combat operations against the French forces of the Vichy regime in the region of Madagascar. The Canadian Air Force (RCAF) also operated the Beaufort BeaufortMk.I – these were the 415th and 149th squadrons. Canadian Beauforts were used until 1943, engaging in patrol flights and solving anti-submarine defense tasks.

Bristol Beaufort Mk.I

Fuerza Aérea de los Dominios Británicos en la Segunda Guerra Mundial

El cazatorpedos Bristol Beaufort, muy utilizado en el Mando Costero de la RAF, también formó parte de las unidades aéreas de los países de los Dominios Británicos. Así, en agosto de 1941, se formó el 489º escuadrón con pilotos de la Real Fuerza Aérea de Nueva Zelanda (RNZAF). Recibieron varios Bristol Beaufort Mk.I, que operaron hasta el invierno de 1942. A finales de 1941, la Fuerza Aérea Sudafricana (SAAF) recibió 18 aviones Beaufort Mk.I para proteger las vitales rutas marítimas alrededor del Cabo de Buena Esperanza. En el invierno de 1942, se crearon dos divisiones en la SAAF: la 36ª y la 37ª Coastal Flight, que incluían estos aviones. Al principio desempeñaron funciones de patrulla y más tarde participaron en operaciones de combate contra las fuerzas francesas del régimen de Vichy en la región de Madagascar. Las Fuerzas Aéreas Canadienses (RCAF) también operaban los BeaufortMk.I – se trataba de los escuadrones 415 y 149. Los Beaufort canadienses se utilizaron hasta 1943, realizando vuelos de patrulla y resolviendo tareas de defensa antisubmarina.
