The Hawker Typhoon - a powerful, potent ground attack aircraft that redressed the balance in mainland Europe during World War Two. This particular unit - RB396 - had a short but illustrious career. Built in November 1944 and delivered to 83GSU at RAF Westhampnett by ATA pilot Anna Leska, she then joined 174 Squadron on the continent. The aircraft was flown by many pilots, but mainly by Frank Johnson. She was flown by Sidney Russel-Smith on 28th March 1945 picking up flak damage - one of eighteen occasions on which this happened in her four month life. Finally, at the hands of Chris House, she was damaged again, this time resulting in a forced landing near Denekamp on the 1st April 1945.
