    Consolidated XPB2Y-1 Coronado, San Diego, Spring 1938.
    Originally flew with a single vertical stabilizer, it exhibited stability issues and the two smaller fins were added. The production PB2Y-2 had twin tails and significant dihedral in the horizontal stabilizer.

    An uncle told me that he laid down on a fellow crewman who had bought it minutes earlier. He still dreamed about that fifty years later.

    I spoke with a co-pilot who described a shell passing through the fuselage without exploding. His comment: "that one frayed my pucker string".

    Hurricane Mk IIB Z3977 of the 81 Squadron 151st Wing on airfield in Vaenga 2

    Operation Benedict - Wikipedia

    Operation Benedict (29 July – 6 December 1941) was the establishment of Force Benedict with units of the Soviet Air Forces (VVS, Voenno-Vozdushnye Sily) in north Russia, during the Second World War. The force comprised 151 Wing Royal Air Force (RAF), with two squadrons of Hawker Hurricane fighters. The wing flew against the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) and the Suomen Ilmavoimat (Finnish Air Force) from Vaenga (now Severomorsk) in the northern USSR and trained Soviet pilots and ground crews to operate the Hurricanes, when their British pilots and ground crews returned to Britain.

    Aerial vertical image taken over the Moabit District of Berlin during a Raid by 33 De Havilland Mosquitos of the Light Night Striking Force in 1944. The Track of a falling Target Indicator (TI) can be seen on the right, illuminating the River Spree, and the Charlottenburger Chaussee, running from top right through the Tiergarten to the Brandenburger Tor & Unter den Linden. The other Light sources are German Searchlights.

    "Illuminators"; were PFF aircraft flying in front of the main force who would drop markers or target indicators (TIs) onto the designated 'aiming point' already illuminated by the "Finders".
