The Fairey Swordfish bomber was most famous for its role in the sinking of the Bismark in WWII.  Despite this bi-plane being fairly dated at this time, it successfully dropped torpedoes which disabled the steering of the Destroyer.  For more information, see the following link

We also have a huge three bladed propeller from a Fairey Swordfish – which is a very impressive display item.  Please enquire if you would like more information.
