    Night Witches AKA Lady Russian Bombers. They had the oldest, noisiest, crappiest planes. The engines would conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. The planes were so noisy that to stop Germans from hearing them coming and start 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 heck out of Dodge.

    Nightwitches 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. to stop germans from hearing them coming 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.
