“The Blitz” – Arado Ar 234
The Arado Ar 234 Blitz (English: lightning) was the world’s first operational jet-powered bomber, built by the German Arado company in the closing stages of World War II.
Produced in limited numbers it was used almost entirely in the reconnaissance role. In its few uses as a bomber it proved to be nearly impossible to intercept. It was the last Luftwaffe aircraft to fly over the UK during the war, in April 1945.
