Limited Edition


Equipped with Gladiators No. 263 Squadron was sent to Norway in April 1940 in an attempt to give air cover for British and Norwegian forces. Operating on a frozen lake, the Gladiators were rendered unfit for action within three days. In May they arrived back in Norway, this time farther north. Its aircraft embarked on the carrier "Glorious", which was sunk en route to the UK by German surface ships

The Gloster Gladiator was the last British biplane fighter, a development of the Gauntlet with an enclosed single seat cockpit, cantilever landing gear, increased armament, and a 3-blade fixed pitch propeller. First flown in 1935, the Gloster Gladiator went into service with the RAF in 1936
