Hitler’s latest secret weapon, the lightning-fast Messerschmitt 262 jets were unmatched by the Allies in speed.
So the RAF had to go down and nail this menace for good, the hard way – on the ground. But to dive your Tempest right inside a hangar full of a dozen jets and drop your bombs – well! Not one man in the squadron would have given tuppence for your chances…
But this was the sort of thing the special flight of three known as ‘Carter’s Killers’ were always doing. And they had a good reason – Carter!
