A Junkers Ju 90 of Lufttransportstaffel 290 turns for the land as it comes under cannon attack from a Martin Marauder piloted by Wing Commander W S G Maydwell, the Commanding Officer of No. 14 Squadron RAF, off Bastia, Corsica. Maydwell and his crew, who had taken off from Protville, Tunisia, on a low-level reconnaissance sortie over the Tyrrhenian Sea, continued to attack the Ju 290 until they were shot at by the Corsican coastal defences and forced to break off. The Ju 290 crashed in Bastia.
