Bombs exploding on Maleme airfield, Crete, during a daylight raid by Bristol Blenheim Mark IVs of No. 14 Squadron RAF, flying from LG 21/Qotafiya III, Egypt. The aircraft are Junkers Ju 52/3ms, most of them in a wrecked condition as a result of the landing of airborne troops on the airfield on 21 May 1941, during the German invasion of the island.
