After dropping a huge French flag on top of the Arc de Triomphe, the British pilot headed towards the Gestapo headquarters which he raked with 20mm shells.
The attack sent the German SS troops running for their lives [and crying like girls], to the delight of Parisians.
Just read the whole thing. It’s awesome.
It reminds me oddly of this.
