    My rectum would be so tight you couldn't drive a tooth pick in it with a 10 pound sledge hammer.

    Cool photo Nick!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Looks like a Bf 410, although my aircraft recognition has gone rather rusty over the years!

    Either a 210 or a 410 as you said Steve!...

    If I recall, the 410 A1 U4 had the rotating guns fixed either side of the fuselage, so it can't be that one!

    It is a 410 as you stated Steve, it's got the big BK 5 cannon !...

    This is what our regiment used against planes - before we re-equipped of course! but those guns were good fun to shoot.

    Me 410A-1/U4 with a BK 5 autocannon, note some later models were stripped of the two rear facing guns to accommodate a slightly larger fuel tank according to "heavy beats: tanks of the sky".

    I can imagine if you ever hit a B-17 with that 50mm beast, you would hit the tail gunner and push him all the way through out of the nose section.
