The G -IA 'so f the Third and Fourth Fighter Groups put up a spirited resistance to the German invasion o f May 1940 although vastly outnumbered, they destroyed many German bombers and transports in the few sorties which they managed to mount. Eight aircraft from the Third Group succeeded in getting into the air before their base was destroyed, and shot down fourteen Luftwaffe bombers in a single action. Like No. 302 illustrated here, they later had no alternative but to crash-land in open country: German paratroopers were already in control o f their home bases.
