A Kamikase bomb

#1 Post by rt.zimmermann » Sat Feb 28, 2015 6:25 am

The Yokosuka MXY-7 Ohka was a rocket powered human-guided anti-shipping kamikaze attack plane, using as a platform, the bomber Mitsubishi G4M Betty. The following link shows a report and some photos this weapon, employed by Japan towards the end of World War II. I hope you enjoy.

Interesting report showing many types of aircraft of the Royal Air Force were captured and tested by the Luftwaffe. The following link shows a collection of photos, some well known and others rare, these aircraft with German markings. Hope you enjoy.

In the last two weeks, the AFB Florianópolis hosted the largest simulated training of Search and Rescue (SAR) in Latin America. The following link brings an extensive and complete report with a lot of photos and information about training. I hope you enjoy and I count on your visit.

B-24 Assembly Ships

#4 Post by rt.zimmermann » Sun Mar 22, 2015 5:14 am

I share with you the following link that brings some photos of B-24 Liberators in unusual cammos. The reason for the colorful and exotic camouflage was to give USAAF bombers a visual aid to form up after takeoff before heading out on their missions. I hope you enjoy.

I share with you some photos of a Boeing B-17 bomber with an exotic and unusual camouflage. Does anyone know if this plane entered service and what the function of this painting? I count on your visit.

This B-17 "Spotted Cow" in an assembly ship.
It was used to help gather big bomber's formation.
