With the launch of the D-Day, June 6th 1944 invasion of Normandy imminent, seventeen naval aviators were taken from aviation units on battleships and cruisers and were assigned to bombardment duty as part of VCS-7.

Once Cherbourg fell VCS-7 was disbanded and the Spitfires were returned to the British, The US Navy shows 1 combat loss of a Spitfire from VCS-7.
