World War II Pictures

Le Bourget

The caption for this picture reads, “Le Bourget Airport Battered”. The tail of the plane visible to the right of this picture is that of a Heinkel 111, a German bomber. Normally, the tail of this aircraft sits on the ground, so it seems likely that this aircraft has been damaged. As you can see in the background, the airfield has been heavily damaged by Allied bombers in an attempt to render it useless to the German Luftwaffe.
