October FSO - Leaning into France 1941 - Frame 3
« on: October 16, 2018, 12:37:48 PM »

The Circus Operations that occurred during 1941 are considered by some to be the most brutal air operations of the war. No sooner had the defensive victory of the Battle of Britain been won, the ardent spirits in Fighter Command began looking for new laurels. Lord Trenchard had said it was time for Fighter Command to go on the offensive. He advocated for a system of sweeps across the channel over into France. The muse behind this was to gain air superiority over France by destroying the Luftwaffe on the ground, and in the air, and by having the Luftwaffe concentrate their forces in the Pas de Calais area. The RAF also hoped to destroy valuable military targets, as well as eventually be able to sneak into Germany.


Left guarding France from the RAF was the veteran units of JG2 and JG26. These two units alone did not make it easy for the RAF, and were distinguishable by their bright yellow noses. JG2 & JG26 were being led by some of the top guns in the Luftwaffe, Whilhelm Balthasar, Adolf Galland, Egon Mayer, & Gerhad SchÖpfel, just to name a few. The RAF on the other hand was being led by veteran pilots such as Douglas Bader, Howard Frizelle Burton, and Robert Stanford Tuck.
