The markings JFK refer to the personal aircraft of Flying Officer Edward (Ted) Kosh who was flying this Hawker Tempest of No 3 Squadron in summer 1944. He flew his last mission with this aircraft on 1st of July ´44, his role was to shoot down V1 Flying Bombs as they crossed the coast and bring them down in rural areas before they reached London.
It appears that his aircraft was caught in the blast of a V1 after he fired on it and it blew up. He crashed at 05:45 near Icklesham, East Sussex. F/O Kosh was buried in Hawkinge Kent.
Maybe they oughta retell the story of The Battle of Britain. But that's a good movie already.
HEY! At least HBO is teaming up yet again with Spielberg and Hanks to create a third WW2 drama, and this time its about the mighty eight!
I could Imagine this as a scene in a Movie about an Ace, the plane slanting, taking out some Ju-87's about to rain hell on London.
(If this wasn't about kosh)
