Dogfight Double, After the fall of France in 1940, the two great air arms of the day, Great Britain’s RAF and
Germany’s Luftwaffe, faced each other in large numbers for the first time. The spearhead of the Luftwaffe was the
Messerschmitt Bf109E. A formidable fighting machine, it had proven itself to be world class throughout its previous
campaigns. However, over southern England in the summer of 1940, it faced a new set of challenges. The most serious test
for the Luftwaffe pilots was the widespread use of the RAF’s finest fighter, the Supermarine Spitfire. More manoeuvrable
than the 109E, the Spitfire was the finest fighter of its day. This set contains two aircraft flown by aces, Helmut Wick
and John Dundas. Neither survived their fateful engagement on 28th November 1940.
