    It's a 4000lb 'Cookie' and Bomber Command dropped around 83,000 of them. Last weeks' one was an MC which accounts for its survival ; an HC one with their thin casing would had rusted through by now.

    A deact !!!???

    Mein Gott, this should be put in some distant, fenced-off part of the Forum. The very thought of such a historic weapon being neutered etc etc etc........
