ABSTRACT
The article announces that a rare World War I bomber rescued from a maharaja's elephant stable in India will soon go on display at the Imperial War Museum's new AirSpace exhibition hangar in Duxford, England. In 1995 a British backpacker and aviation enthusiast stumbled across rotting wood and canvas parts from three de Havilland D.H.9s at the Palace of Bikaner in Rajasthan. Hearing about the man's find, aircraft restorer Guy Black visited the site and purchased the dilapidated bombers.
