Vampire fighter bombers from Australia to Zimbabwe.
History of fighter variants of the second mass-produced jet aircraft of British production.
British de Havilland DH 98 Mosquito aircraft became actors in a number of special aviation events during World War II. Operation Jericho - ie the attack on the German prison in Amiens, France, on February 18, 1944 - became the most widely known, as is another article in this MR special. However, it did not remain an isolated shot. The RAF Mosquitos carried out a series of similar actions aimed at helping the resistance in the occupied countries. Some of them were aimed specifically at the dreaded Nazi secret state police.
