Amazing the amount of damage those old birds took, and still made it home.

Figured, either staged or was REAL close to home when problems happened.

Gonna be dropping altitude pretty quick with 3 engines down.


But still, some of those photos during WWII had some pretty beat up planes that made it home.

How he flew the Lancaster

" Thought two feathered engines on the same side was impressive for low level flight? How about three feathered and 20 feet below? This Avro Lancaster appears to be post war with the nose turret de-activated and a dome in the dorsal position. This is a very foolish maneouvre. The aircraft can't be flown on a single engine. It's done by a dive, a high speed pass and a zoom climb at the far end of the runway with a mad scramble to unfeather. The situation gets serious if the first unfeathering knocks the generator on the good engine off line, leaving only battery power. "

Dude in the center of the photo is OSE. Lindbergh needed a place to land in New Mexico. My great grandfather owned the land. He was politically connected so the Governor provided inmate labor to build the strip. OSE came to the US in the early 1900's from Norway. He built and flew a plane around the same time those Wright characters were in Kitty Hawk.

Another aviation pioneer all but forgotten because of how aggressive the wrong brothers were with patents.
