The use of aircraft in the role of an air observation post had its origins during the First World War. This tradition carried on during World War Two, where several American designed light aircraft were utilised in this role. These aircraft featured a tandem-cockpit accommodation which made them ideal for their roles as a reconnaissance aircraft.  While the American force lent heavily on the L4 Grasshopper, the British relied on the Taylorcraft designed Auster AOP.

D-Day: British
The combined strength of both the British and American forces, combining all three branches of the Airforce, Navy, and Army struck across the beaches of Normandy trying to find a chink in the Germans impenetrable defences. The Germans put up a fight, making capturing the beaches hard, but the Allies secured a foothold on the beachheads. It was enough to withstand the following German Counter-attacks and eventually break out of Normandy. The war for western Europe was now being fought in earnest, as the Allies raced to liberate France and bring the war to Hitler’s front door.
