    It's huge. Can you see the bloke standing on top of it? What did they drop it out of? A flying battleship? :?
     
  2. would love to see the bang that would make
     
  3. That looks like something out of Quatermass and the pit.
     
  4. Yeah, I'd have pissed myself as well.
     
  5. Oi, that's across the road from my old mum's house. Behave.
     
  6. I thought that the Grand slam was the biggest bomb in WW2. discounting Little Boy and Fat Man of course which weren't as big but had bigger yields.

    That thing looks huge !! I assume it is one of ours as there is no way that could have been aerially delivered at that time.

    Who says size isn't everything ??
     
  7. Some one taking the *iss? :D :D :D
     
  8. could have been a naval mine the Germans sometimes dropped those as bombs
    bloody big bang when dropped

    How? IIRC they didn't have a heavy bomber.
     
  10. Erghhh ... looks like a 500kg German bomb to me with equipment sat on it ... perhaps a trepanner/cutter? No man stood on the bomb ... but please tell me you REALLY knew that :?
     
  11. If it was ticking someone will get his GC! You always do..
     
  12. It's a special top secret german "Gulliver" bomb. :wink:
