Knut Åshammer is about to release his third episode of Spitfire Glory, based on the book of the same name by Tor Idar Larsen. There will be several other episodes to come.
Spitfire Glory follows Major Leif Lundsten’s career as a RAF fighter and test pilot during WWII. He served with No. 331 Squadron at North Weald, then as a test pilot for Supermarine at Worthy Down and Chattis Hill.
One of the few to fly hundreds of different Spitfires and serve actively in a frontline squadron for years, Leif’s expertise and combat experience would earn him the trust of all his fellow squadron members and superiors. Appointed Squadron Leader for 331 Sqn in preparation for the D-day invasion, Leif Lundsten led his squadron with professional skill and integrity until his tragic disappearance over Normandy on 9th June 1944. He was never seen again.
