|Short Stirling Mk.III 1/72 Die Cast Model|
Flt. Sgt. Arthur Aaron, No. 218 Squadron, RAF
On August 12, 1943, British pilot Flt. Sgt. Arthur Aaron of RAF No. 218 Squadron commanded a Short Stirling Mk.III bombing mission against the Fiat works at Turin. Immediately heavily fired upon by an enemy fighter, Aaron was struck in the jaw, lung, and right arm, but managed to direct the crew's bomb aimer to fly the crippled aircraft to Bone airfield in North Africa. Nine hours after landing, Aaron died of exhaustion but saved most of his crew.
