Hawker Typhoon Mk.IB MN625 MR-B No.245 Northern Rhodesia Squadron RAF
Model No. AA36512
The most famous single engined aircraft of D-Day aerial operations must be the fearsome Hawker Typhoon. Agile and extremely heavily armed, the Typhoon was to see plenty of action during the summer of 1944, either attacking strategic targets in the weeks prior to invasion, such as German radar sites or providing invaluable close air support to ground units breaking out from the landing beachheads. RAF Typhoons were ready to respond to any request for aerial support. These missions proved to be incredibly hazardous for Typhoon crews, especially from the murderous anti-aircraft fire hurled in their direction from seemingly every German gun in the Normandy region. In the weeks following the D-Day landings, more than 500 Hawker Typhoons had been lost. Flying at high speed and low level Typhoon crews believed you had not experienced real combat flying until you had spent time on a Typhoon squadron.
