Fairey Battle: “Debattled” Dreams.

This now octogenarian single-engine light bomber was, from its very beginning, never really liked or wanted by some members of Royal Air Force. In fact, they even expressed their serious doubts during the testing period. Forced to operate them, the realities of war soon enough proved they’re bloody right. Painfully slow, short-legged and miserably vulnerable -a wonderful medal-enabler…. if you want to die in the process. They’re also a very costly way of wasting around 2,000+ perfectly efficient RR Merlin engines.

“Dec 15 , 1939” … just a few months away to put a tragic end to this idyllic reverie.
