How Many Men Go On A Flying Raid

How many men go on a flying raid?

Let’s say it’s a bomber raid from Britain in the middle years of World War II.

They had ‘thousand bomber’ raids. A thousand bombers would head out from Lincolnshire or wherever and fly to a target in Germany.

Each plane had a crew of somewhether around five or seven depending on the type of aircraft.

So that’s five or six thousand men launched into the air on a night-time raid.
