I was reading the MBI book about the Hs129 and was very surprised to hear that they were operated against the Allies in Normandy. Apparently either III./SG101 or 151 (these were the training units based near Paris) operated from Carpiquet Airfield. he book claims "for several weeks" but I've always had the impression that the airfield was very much in the front line from D-Day on, has anyone got other information on this ? The book does say that an Hs 129 was captured on the airfield when it was eventually taken.
