Sky Vehicle Airplane Aviation Aircraft

Bader, commanding officer of No. 242 Squadron, sitting on his Hurricane during the Battle of Britain in September 1940.


Neat coincidence, a biography of Bader, Reach For The Sky is one of my favorite books. He flew combat with artificial legs, as he lost both in a training accident.

After being shot down his legs were damaged, and starting his stint in a German POW camp, the Germans arranged for new legs to be air dropped for him.

Found a youtube link for the full movie of the book -
