    Ah, the second one is interesting.
    We happened to have a TV production first out on Sunday and Monday night on the bomber attacks on Dresden in the night from 12 to 13 Feb 1945, and I think it was this plane they were flying? Some scenes from inside the planes looked similar.

    I was reading about that in the Sunday papers. Apparently it has caused a bit of controversy in Germany, especially the story about the British pilot and the German nurse.

    Great shots.

    Think of the people who used those radios or walked on those floors so many years ago.
