Hello to All

I am starting this Topic in the memories of all the brave aircrew who sacrficed their lives to shorten the war and liberate our world from tirrany and atrocities of Hiltler and his 3d Reich , because without it Luftwaffe capabilities to attack and be on combat status would have caused many more casualties. I dont want to put down the bravery of the ARR pilots who their duty was to defend their country and obey orders, I also dont want to call Luftwaffe pilots as war criminals ( except with some exceptions) because most of them fought a war which wasnt their own ( e.G. Oblt H.J.Marseille)......and personally I think TIDALWAVE was the greatest and bravest known aerial bombing mission in the history of modern military aviation.

FOR THOSE WHO WANA SEE A STREAMED FOOTAGE FROM THE 44TH BMB SQ PLEASE GO TO http://www.homeofheroes.com/video/index.htmlploesti

Before Santa may show up with gifits for those who were naughty and nice....I have here some footages which I have photographed after being played back on my DVD therefore the quality of the photos may be rather poor and rather insignificant to the viewers. I will will post the photos of the footage I've got from 44th Bmb Grp, 376th SQd etc without comments. Photos wehere taken from those liberator who managed to get back to Benghazi , captured footages from Luftwaffe after the war by the Americans and even some gun camera photos of AAR....your comments, criticizm and getting a number on line for the complaint department is mostly welcome

Alex

Very interesting photographs, but try not to quote your own descriptions all over again.

Hello Cin

The footage are lasting only 10 minutes, the other problem is that copying from a DVD which belong to US Government is rather hard especially from DVD to tape or DVD to DVD becuase is code 1 ( USA) and is rfather a hard and expensive task, if you wish I can take an other shots of this footage. Just a last question I am rather puzzled that Luftwaffe or AAR have guncameras ( photo mitraliera) marked with number 50 on the right hand of it....I never saw gun camera with such markings and I can not to a reasonable conclussion on that stands for, can u help ?

THanks
Alex

I believe that was the Boiler Maker II. Check out the photo on the top of page 56 in my Squadron/Signal book on ARR.

20 ft flight altitude

That seems to me too low. 20 feet is approx. 6 meters, which equals the second floor in a highrise building. The bridge itself should be taller than 6 m.
I live on the 5th floor (~50 feet), that seems to be more accurate.
