RAF ShellHaus raid film, Mosquitos, 1945 (?)

Following on from another thread about Crab in WW2, I've dug up this film clip. Yes, the mad buggers are flying *around* the chimneys.

Sadly, one of the Mossies piled into a school, killing 86 kids.

The Danes just saw it as one of those things, and even have a plaque commemorating the lost aircrew.

Hats off to them all.

Mad sods
Complete loonies but brave as hell flying round in a balsa wood plane!!


Awesome flying. Flying that low over a city must have been a buzz for the pilots. It must also have been gratifying to know that the Danes regarded the twin Merlins as the sound of freedom.
