RAF 'Lancasters' over Berlin; Second World War, 1943.
Illustration showing Royal Air Force 'Lancaster' heavy bombers heading towards their target of Berlin, during the Autumn of 1943. The bombers can be seen at left and centre, flying in various different directions as they attempt to escape the searchlight's glare from Berlin, bottom right. Three German night-fighters can be seen at the top of the image. The scene is illuminated by parachute flares (white spots) which were dropped by German airplanes to try to illuminate the British bombers and made it easier for the German fighters.
