Wood for Wood

Nice bit of trivia but I have a hard time believing the allies would waste precious fuel and risk their airman's lives from the possibility of flak and attack from possible patrols just to make a point

this was when stereoscopic photography was invented to detect dummy airfielfds or camouflaged ones

 

basically you take two pictures with hundreds of m separation from high and look at them in stereo

 

btw i believe the story :)

I wonder if there was a special branch of the RAF for these raids.

 

Yew need to bear in mind there is a often grain of truth in poplar stories.

It's also mentioned in Dutch book(s). During WWII a number of airfields in Holland had a decoy airfield nearby to fool enemy pilots.

Planes like the Blenheim "bombed" these fields with wooden bomb(s). Maybe I can find something in the books that I have....

I sincerely hope they get to the root of this story. Wooden flak guns eh? Their bark will be worse that their bite that's for sure.

Reflected: I've meant to ask for a while: Your avatar, is that Ryoji from "Shin Seiki Evangelion"?
