Low level air attack in Iraq

In any case, a really low cross-country flight is a wonderful experience. It is the only time one can get the feeling of an aeroplane's terrific speed. The ground streaks past under the wings unbelievably fast. Different coloured patches of sand flow by; it's like running your hand across a patchwork quilt. You lift your machine gently upwards to clear hummocks, and then ease her down again the other side to stay low, low, low. As one approaches the target, the adrenalin starts to pump…

This picture shows airplanes going into war, meaning this is the Battle of Britain. The Battle of Britain is a turning point. It is a turning point because the British were one of the first to defend off the Germany in World War Two.
