Hawker Tempest Mk.V 1/72 Die Cast Model (AC006)


Flight Lieutenant L. C. Luckhoff, No. 33 Squadron, 1945 flew this Spitfire MK.I. Combat Report 25 Feb 1945 "I was flying red 3 on an offensive sweep to the Rheine area. I heard the C.O. call up and saw a line of enemy aircraft breaking away to our port in sections. I followed one which was turning wide and got into a turning circle with him. After two circles he pulled away to the deck and I followed closing quickly, he pulled up to about 1,000 feet and returned to starboard, I closed to about 300 yards and giving 2 1/2 rings on the turn I fired a short burst which hit him. He flicked over on his back and went into a dive, hitting the ground still inverted. He broke up but did not burn. I turned back and made after another Me 109 which had broken clear of the combat, before I could close 2 other Tempests got on his tail. At this moment I saw a third break clear and went after. Starting at about 2,000 feet I chased him down to the deck closing quickly and firing all the time. We passed over the edge of a town (ENSCHEDE) where intense light flak opened up. I was hit both wings and fuselage. I got in a final burst a moment later and the enemy aircraft skidded down in a field and finished against a tree. There was still flak about so I got out quickly and landed at Volkel. Claim 2 Me 109' destroyed." F/L L.C. Luckhoff
