BELOW: A section of the Geodetic airframe.

 

The geodetic frame enabled many seriously damaged aircraft to return to base after bombing sorties. The geodetic design was particularly robust and was covered only with fabric. This type of structure was used in Wellington bombers as well as Warwicks. It was used also in civil aircraft such as the Vickers Viking.
