RAF Hawker Typhoon pilots (of No. 181 Squadron) leave their briefing tent at Bazenville to begin their midday sortie over the Normandy battlefield.
The pilots may have flown into action but they wouldn’t have had planes to fly without mechanics like George Johnson and James C. Howard, pictured here. They belonged to the 99th fighter squadron, a squadron that took down 12 Nazi fighter planes in just two days. A job well done!
