I've obsessed about ww2 aircraft all my life and never before have I seen the cannons on a Typhoon painted yellow. I assume this is based on a real Typhoon, so there you go.

I've almost read my Christmas book, Allied jet killers of Ww2, and that has been an amazing read, based on the combat reports of the time.

One one daylight raid there were over 1300 bombers, 900 allied fighters escorting, and 50 Me262s were in the air.

Imagine how that would have looked.

For those following RB396 (Rich). There is also some nice content on Fuzzbook around Manston Airfield and the Typhoon.

Yes Graham commented it was almost photo quality - it is amazing.

Alistair flagged the Typhoon project up a while back Kerry his Dad used to fly them. A great project.


Richard thanks for the reminder, and Alastair I've probably mentioned it before but The Big Show by French pilot Pierre Clostermann is a terrific read about flying the Typhoon in WW2. He also flew Spitfires and Tempest. Highly recommended. Everything I've read about the Typhoon tells me that those who flew them were brave and skilled beyond anything I can comprehend.
