A section of Spitfires claws for height as they are called for an instant take-off. Based on a temporary winter strip, albeit with nice accommodation in the nearby manor house, the Spits stand ready for the alert call. Given the green light from the control caravan the aircraft are airborne in minutes leaving a haze of blowing snow at the far end of the strip. If needed, the �blood wagons� stand ready at the edge of the field when the aircraft recover.
Tactical strip operations became the norm as the Allied forces edged their way across Europe in 1944.
