Typhoons Outward Bound by Richard Taylor. (AP)


Typhoons Outward Bound by Richard Taylor. (AP)

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 disaster befell the German Army during the third week in August 1944. For over two months, sixteen divisions of the Germany Army had battled to contain the huge tide of the Allied armies as they swept ashore in the weeks following D-Day. Overwhelmed by the size and determination of the invasion force, the Germans fell back amidst bitter fighting, contesting every town, every village, and every hedgerow. But there was one thing they could not fight against - devastating Allied air superiority - and leading the assault were the deadly ground-attack Typhoons of the RAF. Equipped with cannons and eight lethal rockets, the Typhoons simply cut the German Panzer Divisions to shreds, the burning, blasted, and obliterated hulks of tanks and vehicles lay srewn across an ever decreasing battlefield as the Allies fought to snare their enemy within the Falaise Pocket. And ensnare them they did. The only option for the Germans was to surrender or perish. Most choose to surrender, thousands and thousands of crack troops crushed by one of the deadliest air to ground attacks in history. The Typhoons lethal weaponry is clearly visible in Richard Taylors beautiful painting Typhoons Outward Bound. As another fine summer day begins, Typhoon Mk1bs of 247 Squadron are en-route to the Normandy 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.
