History[edit | edit source]
Built with metal skinned wings by Hawker Aircraft, as part of a batch from Langley and Brooklands, by late February 1941 V7670 was operating from Malta.
V7670 was used by Flying Officer John Payne of 261 Squadron to claim a Bf 110 damaged on 25 February, together with a Bf 110 probably destroyed and a Dornier Do 215 destroyed on 5 March. Shortly afterwards, it was captured in North Africa, and repainted with Luftwaffe insignia, only to be recaptured in December 1942. It was then passed to 208 Squadron
