#WWII #Luftwaffe #nazigermany Hanna Reitsch was the world's first female test pilot. Tiny and blue eyed, she was ferocious supporter of the German war effort. She had been a stunt pilot in 1930's movies and would move on to test the latest war planes. After Stalingrad she urged Hitler to allow her and 70 others to form a V-1 missile manned suicide squad - which eventually wasn't built. She heard while in Sweden rumors of Nazi gassing in death camps - she believed it was shocking enemy propaganda and took the info to Himmler. Himmler pretended to know nothing of it. In April '45 she escaped the Berlin bunker with a cyanide capsule Hitler had given her. Her father shot her mother and Hanna's siblings and himself after the war to avoid rumored deportation to Soviet controlled Silesia. *She continued her fame in West Germany and the U.S. and would set more flight records. Eventually Reitsch would build a glider program for Africans in Ghana. Nehru invited her to India. JFK invited her to the White House **In 1979 it's believed her death in Frankfurt was caused by biting into the very cyanide capsule Hitler had given her long ago in his bunker. #Berlin #hannareitsch #aviatrix #femalepilots #deutschland #ghana #nkrumah #jfk #Shoah #ironcross #testpilots *in a 1970's interview with a Jewish-American reporter she said, "And what have we now in Germany? A country of bankers and car-makers. Even our great army has gone soft. Soldiers wear beards and question orders. I am not ashamed to say I believed in National Socialism. I still wear the Iron Cross with diamonds Hitler gave me. But today in all of Germany you can't find a single person who voted Adolf Hitler into power ... Many Germans feel guilty about the war. But they don't explain the real guilt we share – that we lost..."
Depicted are German soldiers gathered to see new orders given to them [Russia 1941] seen on the picture are four German soldiers in October of 1941. The German invasion of Russia came to a halt as The October rain and mud set in. Which allowed the Russian army to reorganize during the last months of 1941. {#ww2 #worldwar2 #germany #russia #army #war #autumn #october #invasion #military #tanks #ciggarettes #orders #soldiers #wehrmacht #ostfront #easternfront #ussr #photography #rain #rarephotos #hd #luftwaffe #kriegsmarine } [Follow My partners @armies_of_world_wars @world_at_war_33 @pictures._.of._.war ] {Follow @oliwia_zajac.pl 😍😘} [@historians_union_main ]
ПОДЪЕМ САМОХОДНОЙ УСТАНОВКИ В АВСТРИИ

В Австрии у берега Дуная обнаружили советскую самоходную установку Второй мировой войны, сообщает в среду, 24 июня 2010 года, британское интернет-издание Ananova.

Как сообщает издание, военные специалисты обезвредили около 50 снарядов, а также несколько десятков гранат, находившихся внутри машины, и после того, как танк был извлечен из Дуная неподалеку от города Бад Дойч, его доставили в Венский музей военной истории...

#WWII #Luftwaffe #ironcross #testpilots Countess Melitta Schenk Gräfin von Stauffenberg, was the sister-in-law of the Count who set the bomb which injured Hitler in '44. She was secretly part Jewish (her grandfather Jewish from Poland had converted to Protestantism). She won the Iron Cross for her work as a Luftwaffe test pilot, and survived air combat. She favored Germany over the Nazi party, and had known of the bombing plot. She was briefly arrested after the bombing but was returned to duty. In Bavaria in April '45 she was shot down and killed by a U.S. fighter plane #vonstauffenberg #aviatrix #nazigermany #shoah #femalepilots #womenincombat #deutschland #valkerie #UnternehmenWalküre
Grandfather treasures always leave me stunned. Here's a snap of what appears to be a pilot sitting in a Luftwaffe plane from WW 2. #ww2 #americana #war l#luftwaffe #germany #deutschland #aviationphotography #war
The Eurofighter Typhoon is a twin-engine, canard-delta wing, multirole fighter. The Typhoon was designed originally as an air superiority fighter and is manufactured by a consortium of Alenia Aermacchi (Leonardo since 2017), Airbus, and BAE Systems that conducts the majority of the project through a joint holding company, Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH formed in 1986. NATO Eurofighter and Tornado Management Agency manages the project and is the prime customer.

The aircraft's development effectively began in 1983 with the Future European Fighter Aircraft programme, a multinational collaboration among the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. Disagreements over design authority and operational requirements led France to leave the consortium to develop the Dassault Rafale independently.

#WWII #1943 #NYC #AmerikaBomber Luftwaffe prisoners interrogated by British intelligence during the war said a secret hour long photo-recon flight by a Nazi six-engined bomber over New York City occurred in Aug. '43. The German plane piloted by a famous female German pilot had taken off from Norway and returned to Paris. The U.S. Army Air Corps had spotted the plane over NYC too late. The bomber had earlier swung over Canada and war plants in Michigan as well. *The story has been both considered fantasy and factual by different historians in the decades following the war. #luftwaffe #newyorkcity #airforce #nazigermany #junkers #themaninthehighcastle #photorecon #secretmissions
"A Marine can share my fox-hole any day', says Rusty the Red Fox. Private Harry W. Weber, 19, son of Mr. and Mrs. H.B. Weber of Skowhegan, ME does just that as he aims his rifle in the field at the Quantico, VA, Marine Base. Rusty is Private Weber's pet."
