This exercise, with aircraft operating out of Hal-Far, was conducted in two phases.
First phase consisted of consolidated practice in station keeping, paratroop dropping and re-supply by air dropping of 1-ton containers, both by day & night, over Sicily. Various routes from Malta were flown, but unpredictable local winds over the Drop Zone area reduced the overall accuracy of the drops.
Phase Two. This consisted of stream assaults, again during both daylight and night-time, with the final phase being a stream assault over Pisa airfield.
The table below gives some details of the participating aircraft, but obviously missing certain details like serials and squadron.
