 Surely one of the most irrepressible aces of World War 1, Frenchman Charles Nungessers victory total of 43 confirmed kills and a further 11 probables was achieved despite surviving a number of crashes and accidents from which he always bounced back in defiance of his quite severe injuries. His fame and prowess brought him a personal challenge from his German adversaries to take part in a one-on-one combat. Accepting the challenge, the lone Nungesser encountered not one, but six, enemy aircraft and promptly sent two of them down in flames. In this picture, his Emblems of Mortality personal motif is clearly seen on the side of his Nieuport 23 as he sees off an Albatross toward the end of the war. Nungesser survived the Great War, only to be lost over the Atlantic when attempting a flight to New York in 1927.

The episode was witnessed by navigator Cecil Keys in the leading Lancaster QR/Y from 61 squadron on his last raid of the war. Lt. Schall, an ace with 117 kills, and 2nd highest jet ace of the war with 14 victories was killed the following day when his aircraft hit a bomb crater on landing at his base of Parchim.

 The remarkable Fairey Swordfish served with distinction throughout WWII, despite being nothing short of an anachronism.  Its dated appearance belied a solid, workmanlike airframe that provided a stable platform from which to launch torpedoes against enemy shipping, the venerable 'Stringbag' sending a greater tonnage of Axis shipping to the bottom than any other allied aircraft in the Second World War.  A Mk.II is shown taking off from HMS Ark Royal early in 1941.

The entry of the United States into the war opened up vast new hunting grounds for the German u-boat fleet. Operation Paukenschlag (Drumbeat in English) began in January 1942, bringing the U-boats their easiest pickings of the war. Over 300 allied vessels were sunk during the Paukenschlag along the US coastline, ranging from New York harbor, to the Straits of Florida. This period, also known as the second Happy Times to the men of the U-boats, was only brought to an end in mid 1942 by the formation of allied convoy systems. On the evening of April 5th 1942, U552, commanded by Kapitanleutnant Erich Topp, sealed the fate of the British tanker MV British Splendour east of Cape Hatteras. The U-boat was part of the fourth wave of boats of Operation Paukenschlag, she returned to Saint Nazaire on April 27th 1942 having sunk seven ships during the patrol.

 Damon Hill at the height of his career driving the Williams Renault FW18, gave on of his finest performances at the 1996 San Marino Grand Prix at Imola. Starting second on the grid he shot off the line to go side by side with pole sitter Michael Schumacher. Their dreams were temporarily shattered when David Coulthard flew by in the Maclaren after making an incredible start. The race developed into a three car scrap with Hill apparently struggling to stay with the leaders. What everyone didnt know however was the strategy of the Williams which meant that Hill was able to stay out for an amazing 26 laps and after he pitted he managed to come out in front of Schumacher and Coulthard. By lap 39 the Williams and Ferrari pair were only 1.5 seconds apart. Further stops and some controversial hold ups by the battle between by Diniz and Hakkinen allowed Hill to extend his lead, eventually winning the race by a comfortable 16 seconds. This was to be Hills year and he went on to win the 1996 Formula One World Drivers Championship.
