Flying Officer R. K. McIntyre, another Lancaster pilot, said that when they arrived they found that cloud covered about half the area of the capital.

"There were blocks of searchlights – hundreds of them," he said. "They were trying to probe the clouds. The rear gunner saw two aircraft coned. Flak was pretty solid. The enemy appeared to be using the type that looks like hose piping as it comes up. It gives you the impression that it is impossible to get through it – but you do somehow. We had one or two holes in the bomb doors from hits."

"LIKE HUGE GEYSER"
"The fires were growing all the time," said Sgt. D. Baines, wireless operator in another Lancaster. He was taking part in his sixth flight to Berlin, and added that five minutes after he had bombed, an orange flame shot up through the clouds.

"It was like a huge geyser," he said. "By the time we left there was a large area of fire burning dark red with black smoke rising to a height of 15,000 feet"

Berlin raid, Thursday 2.12.1943.
