Brothers in arms B&W version
Three RAF fighter-bombers sweep low over the Normandy countryside after D-Day in June 1944: a Mustang III (P51-C) carrying two 500lb bombs, a Hawker Typhoon Mk 1b with rocket projectiles, and a Supermarine Spitfire Mk IXc.
Allied supremacy in the air above the landing beaches and their hinterland was crucial in allowing the troops on the ground to establish themselves, then to break out to ultimate victory – pinning down German forces and severely punishing any that attempted to move in daylight.
My depiction is perhaps not entirely realistic, in having the three aircraft types in formation, but stands as a symbol of the crucial role of the air forces, including the RAF, during the Normandy invasion.
