Westland Lysander Blank Birthday Fathers Day Card by Aviation Artist Patricia Forrest


After initial use during WWII as an army co-operation aircraft, the Westland Lysander would become more famous as the aircraft used by the Special Operations Executive (SOE) to drop and retrieve agents and operatives from occupied Europe. Most sorties were done after dark where the superb short landing and take-off ability of the Lysander and hushed engine note made it ideal for the purpose.
