Post subject: on the Hunt ..................

........... for Doodle bug's July 1944


=> fullsize screenshot

some info on this particular Aircraft:


Aircraft flown by FO. Burgwall of RAF 322 (Dutch) sq. Burgwall was credited with 21 V1 flying bomb (doodle bug) kills while 322 squadron was stationed at RAF Malling from June 20, 1944 until July 30, 1944.

Most of the kills were achieved by tipping the V1 with a wingtip, succesfully tried by FO. Van Eijk for the first time ever. This procedure soon became common practice amongst all pilots engaged in fighting off the V1, until the Germans installed a sensor that made the V1 explode upon wing-tipping, 322 Sq. was credited with a total of 110.5 V1 kills.

Depicted in original WW2-era condition, this aircraft was operated by 322 (Dutch) Squadron 1944. 322 Sqn received the Spitfire XIV early 1944. The Squadron joined N°. 141 Wing of N°. 85 Group and flew armed reconnaissance sweeps over the approaches to the invasion area in Normandy. Soon after D-Day, flying-bomb attacks began and No.322 was engaged in destroying these until August 1944.

Nice.
Didn't know about the V1 sensor before reading that.
I'm based near Brooklands Museum (formerly airfield) and there's a field near there that the RAF used to actually aim V1's at when 'tipping' them.

I wonder who the unlucky pilot who found out about the sensor first was?

And how quickly did the information spread to other units?
