Thank you Glenn. I don't know how to upload my photo's on LS...

The RAF considered staging re-enactment for the 70th anniversary, but decided that such a landing would be impossible....... ???? ...... Laughing

That is why to this day, it is described as ''The singlemost skillfull feat of navigation and flying in History''


No worries.. i knew ( thought) you didnt have an uploader / web hosting for pics..

I think the RAF were worried about safety ... doubtful you would get a landing without some sort of injury depending on what you used...it is certainly possible though Smile

Makes me laugh, We landed 3 unpowered aircraft in an area the size of a football pitch. The yanks could only manage to scatter 13500 paratroopers over 60 square miles... (but of course they won the war singlehanded)

All the glider pilots had to navigate with was a stopwatch, compass and air-speed indicator. cloud base was 400ft.

( The Americans didn't think to adapt their Nordon bombsights to hit LZ's until a British pilot pointed it out)

Best thing I've seen on Facebook this week:
Photo of an extremist preacher declaring ''When I die, there will be 40 Virgins waiting for me in Paradise''
Then a photo of Hugh Hefner with that sly smile on his face saying ''well, you better hurry up Fella!!''
