Radio Guidance and Radar - Wn158 - St Pierre Eglise

Radio Guidance and Radar - Wn158 - St Pierre Eglise

Erika was a late development in radio guidance, and came too late to have much effect on the German’s war effort. They had started with Knickebein, then progressed to X-Gerat and Y-Gerat, all of which were far superior to anything the Allies had at that time. The only problem with this system was the large number of bunkers needed which allowed the planes of the RAF to spot the installations. E...

Tiger II Tank - 213 at La Gleize

Tiger II Tank - 213 at La Gleize

Here a trace, there a memory. Only if you drive into the hamlet of La Gleize via the Churchroad, you feel the ominous strengths of that dark December month. Because there, still as massive and threatening as it was on Saturday 16 December 1944, when it rattled over the border for that daring adventure, Obersturmbannführer Jochen Peipers last Tiger-tank stands.

This Tiger II (Köni...

Abandoned Airport near Dallas-Fort Worth

Abandoned Airport near Dallas-Fort Worth

This is a bizarre tale of a massive taxpayer-funded international airport which was plowed under in a mere 20 years after it opened. It is perfect example of politics gone wrong, and incredible levels of wasteful spending.
Greater Southwest International Airport (GSW), Forth Worth, TX

The vast majority of the millions of airline passengers who pass through the present-day ...

NH Major Plaza of Leon

NH Major Plaza of Leon

Probably the worse(worst) thing that it is possible to say of a hotel is that it(he,she) is agreeable. Or maybe not? Being demanding, that one to what anyone aspires when he(she) visits the Major square(seat) of León and looks abreast at the quadrilateral one of neoclassic porches, work of the XVIIIth century, the mere tickle of the senses comes out. The historical front of this hotel makes jum...

Baby Galaxy

Baby Galaxy

Scientists using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have measured the age of what may be the youngest galaxy ever seen in the universe. By cosmological standards it is a mere toddler seemingly out of place among the grown-up galaxies around it. Called I Zwicky 18, it may be as young as 500 million years old (so recent an epoch that complex life had already begun to appear on Earth). Our Milky Way ga...
