Built as a long-range fighter using parts that were available from the earlier Beaufort. Using
these parts made it possible to complete the first aircraft a little more than 8 months after the
concept. The Beaufighter was over shadowed by the Mosquito’s success but it was the
Beau that was there in 1940 and 1941 helping to defeat the German night “Blitz”. The Beau
served in the Pacific as well as Europe. The Japanese referred to the aircraft as
“Whispering Death” because of its ability to strike and disappear so quickly. The last
Beaufighter was produced on September 21, 1945 making aircraft 5,562. Of the 5,562 there
were 1,063 Mk.VIs.
