    ...Swordfish are the most amazing aircraft. They were obsolete as WW2 broke out, yet stayed in action through 1945!

    They even lingered on doing odd jobs after their replacement (the Fairey Albacore) was withdrawn. In May 1945, the RAF were using all-black radar-equipped Swordfish (armed with 8 x 60lb rocket projectiles) on nocturnal hunts for German mini-subs!
