Avro Lancaster Attack on the Tirpitz Aviation card

Avro Lancaster Attack on the Tirpitz Aviation card
November 12th 1944. Lancaster’s from no 617 and 9 Squadron bombed the German battleship ‘Admiral von Tirpitz’ at anchor just off Tromso.
Using Barnes Wallis designed Tallboy bombs dropped from between 12,000 to 16,000 feet they delivered several very close misses and three or more direct hits.
A column of steam and smoke shot up to 300 feet and within a few minutes the massive ship began to turn turtle.
The RAF and Royal Navy had had several previous ‘goes’ at the Tirpitz with limited success,

The painting depicts Wing Commander J B Tait’s Lancaster after his bombing run ‘staying on the scene’ to observe the outcome of the mission.
The rest of 617 and 9 Squadron aircraft complete their runs and turn to head home to Lossiemouth.
Down below at low level another Lancaster is orbiting and filming the destruction. This Lancaster came from 463 Squadron and was the last one to return home.
With only one Lancaster being seriously damaged all the aircraft completed the mission.
