    Default How scary it is to be a real bomber during the war.

    A lot of pictures, a lot of them damned scary. A guy at my gun club lied on his enlistment at age 16 and got stuck in the belly turret on a B-17.

    And you thought the damage my ramming caused was scary
    I was truly amazed at the dedication shown by ERK's wingman.
    ERK must be an extremely inspirational leader given that his team mates follow him unto death.

    This is scary... what was left of my bomber during one of the Squad Nights!
    Many pilots of the time were the opinion that a fighter pilot in a closed cockpit was an impossible thing, because you should smell the enemy. You could smell them because of the oil they were burning.
