Hunter’s moon ……………… the worst conditions for the Bomber Command crews, silhouetted against the lower cloud tops and lit by the near full moon. Although operations were, in general, not launched in full moon and clear sky conditions there were occasions when due to faulty met forecasts the predicted cloud cover would not materialise. Luftwaffe night fighters, far and away the most effective of the German defences, would reign supreme in the conditions implied in the image - beautiful but deadly.
Composite image from airshow pics and archive sky scapes - with a fair amount of desaturation and just a touch of blue filter.
