Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Never knew that was an option.

I‘ve been in that bomber before and it is the coolest thing ever. It must be even more awesome to jump out of it.

Thanks for posting that Bombs!

If I'm right crewmen in the front always bailed from the bomb bay

So can we call it a reenactment? :v

The pilots, top gunner, and engineer bailed from the bay.

The navigator/bombardier and the nose gunner bailed from the nose access door.

I read once that British SOE and parachuting units jupmed in this way from British bommbers.
