    The blimp hangar reminds me of the one that (used to be) in Miami back in the '70s.

    "The Douglas B-23 Dragon was a twin-engined bomber developed as a successor to the B-18 Bolo. The B-23 was faster and better armed than the B-18, but was not comparable with either the B-25 and B-26 medium bombers, consequently only 38 B-23s built, and were used primarily for transport duties."

    Note the dummy two-gun turret to alter Graf Spee's appearance. I've read that she also had a dummy second funnel.

    Most of my shopping was done in the City of Catania when I posted to Sigonella. Typical Crusader streets.
