Bader Hurricane

On the morning of 11 July 1940, Douglas Bader, the new commander of 242 squadron took off alone in filthy weather to intercept a lone intruder that had been reported in his sector. Here we see Bader as he breaks into the clear, and spots the enemy. Minutes later the Dornier crashed into the sea, the first victory for Bader and 242 squadron.
