Train Busters - Hawker Tempest


In the mid months of 1944 the RAF mounted an all-out offensive against German lines of communication. This operation included many squadrons from both 2nd Tactical Air Force and the Air Defence of Great Britain. Here Tempests from 3 Squadron of the Newchurch Wing attack railway targets in France. The Tempest would do few sorties like this, with its Hawker stablemate, the Typhoon being used for most of this work.
