Photographer's Remark

First flown in January 1940, the Fulmar was a two-seat long-range shipboard fighter aircraft. Though often outperformed by enemey fighters, it did fairly well against Italian aircraft and its pilots were credited with 112 kills in all, making the Fulmar, surprisingly, the top-scoring Fleet Air Arm fighter of WWII.
