  2. 'kinhell yahoooooooo.

    That was a big bang :D
     
  3. Wow - thats a cheeky little crater!
     
  4. I remember this...it makes firework night seem so insignificant.

    However POF Wah has a long list of similar experiences and I was actually there the night the rocket motor plant had its big cook-off...I suggest that if you are a non-Pakistani national, recently arrived from India, that you do not visit a town with a dodgy ordnance factory the night it goes poop! Very nice men the Pakistani police...
     
  5. Indeed Cuddles. Note to the various IPT - if you buy cheap sh1t you get - cheap sh1t!
     
  6. Ah yes RM, remember the Indian 9mm?
     
  7. Righto Staff, I'll be right there. now where did I leave that fag? Oh Sh..........
     
  8. Remember it well - and I know where it is! 200 nautical miles south west of Cork in the Atlantic Trench - along with the Thunderbirds Main and Boost motors, the Energa Grenades (300,000 of them) and the 1000lb bombs a young and seasick Capt R-M dumped from the good ship RFA Sir Galahad :D
     
  9. Has anyone got any piccys of the Kenyan depot explosion a few years back? That was a nice one as well.
     
  10. Novobogdanka - the Ukraine 2004. I have some of Nigeria - I will attempt to find them. The ammunition shown below was stored outside the depot.
