Description

303’s final departure from Northolt in November 1943 marked another turning point in its history. By the time of the Normandy landings in June 1944, it was the last squadron in the Polish Air Force to be still flying obsolete Spitfire V. Re-equipped with the Spitfire IX in mid-1944, 303 was then employed against V2 supersonic rocket missiles. Just like in 1940, the 303 Squadron pilots protected Britain against the German attack, but this time they logged no engagements with Luftwaffe aircraft and their anti-V2 campaign was virtually unnoticed.

 

Converting to Mustangs in April 1945, 303 Squadron ended its last operational tour a month later, when the war in Europe ended. For the Polish servicemen, it was a bitter end. 303 Squadron was disbanded in December 1946 and it seemed that the legendary unit was history, once and for all. But in July 2012 two 303 Squadron Battle of Britain aces, Marian Pisarek and Miroslaw Feric flew again on the tail fins of the Polish Air Force supersonic fighters at thr Royal International Air Tattoo! The ‘Kościuszko Squadron’ legend lives on…

 

This third volume describes the last three years of 303 Squadron’s history, including D-Day operations over Normandy and final strikes at the heart of the Third Reich. It concludes with the rebirth of the ‘Kościuszko Squadron’ traditions in free Poland.
