Radio chatter clip of WWII Lancaster bomber engaged by German plane during a attack mission

Since radios were not so advanced, audio clips from World War Two are quite rare.

This make the following radio chatter clip of a Lancaster bomber being attacked by a German fighter during a war mission over Germany particularly interesting.

The crew seems to panic as the German plane engages the Lancaster shortly after the latter has dropped its bombed, and the captain at one point shouts “Okay, don’t shout all at once!”

Eventually one of the gunners manages to bring down the German fighter.
