First: I had never heard of this aircraft up to an hour ago.

Second: I wasn't looking for it, my wife and I were discussing her Norwegian ancestors and I mentioned Wagners music "Ride of the Valkeries"

Third: Delving into Google,

The internet has copius references to this B70 bomber. Here is one link and video.

Don't miss a link to previous landing with all tyres (except nose wheels) exploding

I have just spent 2 glasses of wine reading about this.

QConfused was there life before Google ?

Hi
Have you seen this Buff which had it's fin virtually wiped out in mid air?
They made this educational film to show pilots just what their plane could survive.
