This homage amounts to only one word… recognition.

Jean Maridor was chasing a V-1 in 1944.
He shot it down when it was falling on a hospital.

On August 3,1944, during one of these dangerous operations Captain Jean Maridor saw a V1 directy falling on a hospital in Benenden. Unable to tilt it with his wing as pilots did, he followed right behind firing at point blank range leaving himself no way out after the V-1 explosion. He sacrificed his life destroying his 6th flying bomb, his disintegrated Spitfire crashing near the hospital he had just saved.
