Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

German Guards gave the British POW's real work to keep them occupied , However they did not notice in their spare time the Prisoners had built a Lancaster in the loft of Stalag Luft 111

If anyone ever thinks of inventing contact lenses, this photo should be able to persuade them it's a really bad idea.

The RAF flies snow to the North Pole to help preserve the Polar ice-cap. Or it will, once they find a way of getting the snow into the bomb bay.

The RAF hasn't quite understood the concept of "Dig for Victory".

The Soviet Air Force has reverse-engineered a captured bomber, but unfortunately a small screw was found to have fallen off during taxiing trials. Rather than admit that the Soviet war machine could make an error, the General in charge resolves to find the screw at all costs.

If you ask me, making the Winter Olympics in Bombay was a stupid idea to begin with, but it just gets worse doesn't it?

Aircrew are grateful for the official advice to carry a drink, a blanket and a spade when travelling in winter.

Hoskins grew more and more suspicious as the snow he had been assigned to move was an unusual “yellow” colour...
