Tomlinson’s picture is from this one…

I found all about him watching Battlefield Mysteries Bandits of the Air on History Channel.

This documentary is about Mosquito pilots flying intruder missions.

During the second world war, the Intruders & their Mosquito aircraft were a brilliant synthesis of man and machine – often penetrating hundreds of miles into enemy territory and executing some of the most daring and successful raids of the entire war.

In this episode we return to the battlefields above Europe to reveal the legend of the Intruders – the incredible airmen the Germans called the Bandits of the Air.
