The Junkers Ju88 was a twin-engine multi-role aircraft operated by the German Luftwaffe during World War II. Designed in the mid-1930s, it became one of the most versatile combat aircraft of the war and proved to be suited for almost any role. First flown on December 21 1936, the Ju 88 entered operational service in 1939. It was used successfully as a fighter-bomber, dive bomber torpedo bomber, heavy fighter, night fighter, reconnaissance aircraft, and even as a flying bomb during the closing stages of the war. The Ju 88 was produced until 1945 with more than 16,000 built in dozens of variants, more than any other twin-engine German aircraft of the time.

Although the early Ju 88 showed great promise, it needed both more power and more defensive armament. For these reasons, it could find itself in severe trouble when faced with a determined enemy fighter attack. During the Battle of Britain the RAF exposed these deficiencies and many a Ju 88 was to fall to the guns of RAF Spitfires and Hurricanes. This particular aircraft was badly shot up by RAF fighters over Southern England in August 1940. By October 1940, the Luftwaffe had lost more than 300 Ju 88s over Britain.
