"Tiger Tiger Burning Bright..."

WW2 "Lancaster" bombers above being shot down over Germany. Hundreds were. Just as many hundreds of German bombers were brought down over Britain. Both sides had profoundly brave crews that risked near certain death to bring death to others.

We are Noble in our Madness.

I think that's what I'm trying to say here. I have this WW2 flying fantasy that the Bombers were dropping food, and seeds instead of Bombs.

Such missions with the same risk I would gladly fly today despite my somewhat aged condition. Besides wars should be fought by old men anyway.

Stay Tuned.


  1. That, of course, is exactly what happened in the Berlin airlift. A very good book - The Candy Bombers - details that effort. Cheers.

  2. Yes I was thinking of that. Wouldn't be something if our war birds did just that. Dropped food medicens laptops, and comic books. Such raids I'm all for!
