Thread: Morning BoB Briefing

  1. #1

    Default Morning BoB Briefing

    This has been a fun way to wake the little grey cells . . .



    Ten minutes a morning watching a bit of the movie, reminds me of how interesting the He-111 is. Asymmetric fuselage from top view, glazed nose with the instruments on an overhead position, lots of great inside shots of crew stations and actions, even the crazy tail first vertical bomb bay storage similar to the Zeppelin design. Makes me want to get the minis out and do a game . . .

    The tail-down bomb storage wasn't *that* crazy -- picture the bombs being stored nose-down, and one or more of them slipping loose while taxiing....

    Personally, I've always felt the step-nose -111s were better-looking than the better-known version.

    I try to catch it when it is on even though I have the movie. My other favorite is 12 O'clock High.

    I think that I would have difficulty rationing myself to only ten minutes per day, David.

    Impossible - entire film, every time!

    I have the same edition, great film. I usually have Battle of Britain, Blue Max or Wings in or on the DVD player for those spare 10 minute windows.

    Thumbs up

    I too watch BoB at least 2 or 3 times a year & dip into an episode of Wings from time to time when I need a WW1 fix.
    The Errol Flynn/David Niven "Dawn Patrol" gets an airing along with Blue Max & Aces High from time to time as well.
