Row 1. Above are a British Canbera and a P51 used during the invasion of Normandy. The P51 had aRolls Royce Merlin engine which greatly increased its effectiveness. The Canbera was one of the earliest British bombers of the jet age if not the first and was used throughout the British Commonwealth.
Row 2. The De Havilland Vampire was Britains second jet and flew on September 20, 1943. Most people have the misconception that only the Germans flew or had jets opperational during the Second World War. In fact most of the combatants were developing them or had them in the air. The Vampire was also the first jet to land on a carrier.
Row 3. On the left is the Seahawk and on the right the B17.
Row 4. If it were not for the Spitfire with the help of the Hurricane fighter the battle of Britain might not have been won. The PBY Catalina was tasked with many duties including picking up downed pilots, submarine patrol and even bombing.
