Leonids from Leo
for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.
how the fuck is this not taught in every single history class ever

I’m reblogging this again. Always reblogging. Always
this post bugs the hell out of me cuz there is a much much better one that talks about how they were written out of history and hated and that one is more important.
"I always see in some magazines lines like:" Sting, environmentalist "and" Kurt Cobain, whiny, unhappy, neurotic, angry guy who hates everything and everyone, hates fame and his own life. "But I’ve never been so happy as now. I’m a much happier guy than a lot of people think I am." - Kurt Cobain, 1993.
