Typhoons Outward Bound
In the months following D-Day, Hawkers hard-hitting, snub-nosed Typhoon struck terror into the German formations in Normandy, crack Panzer units wilted under the constant hail of rockets and bombs. Several times a day the Typhoon pilots would cross the Channel to run the gauntlet of flak and ground fire, and deliver their lethal cargo. The Typhoons lethal weaponry is clearly visible in Richard Taylors beautiful new painting Typhoons Outward Bound. As another fine summer day begins, Typhoon Mk1bs of 247 Squadron are en-route to theNormandy battlefront, the first of several missions that day. Skimming at mast-top height, the Typhoons pass over two ancient steam drifters, conscripted into the wartime role of patrolling the Channel and, should the need arise, rescuing any downed aircrew in need of help.
