Oh shoot. It was rainy and overcast in Aleknagik when we were  there otherwise we'd have been able to see the results of this.

 

(Or so I've been told by Mrs. The Captain's dad who grew up there watching this phenomenon).

Swiss ALR Piranha, there are only models of it since the Swiss gov. had no interest in it.
This was, AFAIK the last developement work on an indigenous swiss fighter jet.

Was running some errands today different than the usual, came across this particular B-29.  Photo is pulled from google and not what I took since I wasn't able to actually get out and look at the thing.  Did get to drive pretty close to it, but that's about it.  There's also what I assume is an AH-1F a mile from my campus, I should check it out sometime when I move back.  Funnily enough, it's not listed on wikipedia's list on AH-1s on display.

303d_Bombardment_Group_358th_Bombardment

 

B-17F "Hell's Angels" of 303rd Bombardment Group (Heavy), 358th Bomb Squadron. Hell's Angels was the first 8th AAF B-17 to complete 25 missions. The aircraft later went on to fly a staggering 48 missions, again being the first 8th AAF B-17 to do so. Interesting to note, during the filming of William Wyler's 'Memphis Belle', a second filming team was assigned to "Hell's Angels" in the event "Memphis Belle" was shot down.

Is that the one were the dumb Nazi pilot got lost and landed in England?

Which of the bunch of dumb Nazi pilots do you mean? There's multiple instances of Nazi pilots getting lost and landing at British airbases.
