Cool picks!

That's only 7 planes flying in formation in this shot, but just imagine what the sky looked like from the ground back in WWII with some of their massive bombing raids.

In fact, I was curious and just looked it up. The largest was a raid was on July 27, 1943, in which 787 RAF aircraft bombed Hamburg, Germany. :oops:

when you think about the logistics behind something like that, it can make your head hurt...imagine the fuel, ammo, bombs and coordination to get that many planes in the air in that short amount of time...then imagine what it takes to feed, provide clean clothes and supplies for all of the men (pilots and ground crews) who make it happen...mind boggling...and they didn't have excel spreadsheets or access databases to keep track of everything....
