    Default Sphere operation

    While I understand Circus, Rhubarb, Roadstead, etc, operations, the meaning of SPHERE operations eludes me, can someone put me out of my misery !

    (Spheres perhaps involving fighters sweeping over enemy territory, a Circus without the bombers ?)

    Thanks in advance,

    Ian

    Exactly that is what is called by a wartime pilot in a period article. An early Circus, without involvement of bombers. There was a number of operation types, that is not widely known, like Mosquito or Rover.
