“The German Junkers Ju-87 Stuka dive bombers were the dreaded dirge of the Allied forces in World War II Man, I tell you, they just couldn't be beat. That was the overall feeling amongst the air troops! But on August 18, 1940, Hurricanes of the 43rd and 601st Royal Air Force squadrons, and Spitfires of the 152nd and 602nd squadrons shot down or badly damaged 22 Stukas, which were attacking a radar installation on the south coast of England. This was a positive trend for the Royal Air Force, because the first major Stuka attack on England was on August 8, and at that day, 18 were shot down or damaged. So the tally record showed that of the 220 Stukas in operation, now 76 of them were history!”
