Heinkel He 115

Five Royal Norwegian Air Force (RNAF) Heinkel He 115 aircraft escaped to Scotland, after the fall of Norway. The He115 was a German built torpedo bomber.

On 10th April 1940 this particular aircraft carried out an attack on the German cruisers Koln and Lonigsberg. RNAF officer Lieut. Offerdal flew this aircraft to Meikle ferry, then on to Invergordon. The aircraft is seen being examined by Flt. Lt. Middleton and Flying Off. Fleming of 201 Squadron.

German He 115 aircraft regularly attacked the Arctic Convoys, which sailed from Loch Ewe to Murmansk and Archangel, Russia, later in the war.
