SummaryEdit

Description

A badly damaged North American Mustang Mark I (AM104, 'L') of No. 268 Squadron RAF, on the ground at Odiham, Hampshire (UK), after returning from a sortie over the Rouen area, France. The pilot, Flying Officer A.R. Hill of Norwich, was met by heavy anti-aircraft fire while attacking barges on a canal. Despite losing the rudder controls and the hydraulic system, Hill brought the aircraft back for a successful landing. AM104 was repaired and later flew with Nos. 414 and 430 Squadrons RCAF before it was again damaged by flak, near Venlo, Holland, on 21 October 1944, and was finally struck off charge.
