All the news from the peanut gallery and where all the nasty trash talk fails miserably.
It can get NSFW-ish here: you have been warned!

The testing office said the Ford is unlikely to achieve its goal for the number of sorties it can launch over a 24-hour period, saying it’s “based on unrealistic assumptions.”
It also said that during 8,157 takeoffs and recoveries through last year, the carrier’s new electromagnetic catapult system made by General Atomics demonstrated a reliability of 272 launches “between operational mission failure,” or “well below” its required 4,166. Similarly, its system to snag landing aircraft demonstrated a 41-landing reliability rate “well below the requirement of 16,500,” the testing office said.

Captain Robert Maloney of the 55th Fighter Group, points to a hole in the wing of his P-51 Mustang caused by colliding with a German telegraph pole, while strafing a military train north of Ulm which was rushing equipment to the western front.

After that, he was able to return the plane to the Wormingford base in the UK.

And so what would have happened for it not to have sheared the wing of the plane off at the point it hit the pole?

On February 23, 1945, the iconic photograph of six United States Marines raising the second U.S. flag atop Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima, was taken by Associated Press photographer, Joe Rosenthal.

Three of the six Marines in the photograph—Sergeant Michael Strank, Corporal Harlon Block, and Private First Class Franklin Sousley—were killed in action during the battle. The other three Marines in the photograph were Private First Class Ira Hayes, Private First Class Harold Schultz, and Private First Class Harold Keller.

The photograph has come to be regarded as one of the most significant and recognizable images of World War II.

i watched part of a documentary on those guys a few nights ago. There were several planes in the raid and several of them had to ditch in the jungles of china after the raid because of lack of fuel. The chinese jungle villagers, who didn't speak a word of english, took care of the survivors until they could trasnport them by wagon, or donkey or cart or whatever, to safety.

the story of the survival of those guys in the mountains of China with the help of the chinese people would go a long way to improving relations between the two countries now.
