      This is an image of the air field at Schwäbisch-Hall, Germany after an allied air raid, April 25, 1944. Six Heinkel He177A-3 of IV/KG100 were destroyed by allied bombers.
      If you look closely you can see a crewman doing the smart thing and abandoning the aircraft via the dorsal hatch as it taxi's.

      Yes, a very smart move. He may have survived the war because of it.

      I have to say I am not convinced mil-smile07

      Why would he jump from that aircraft? it doesn't look damaged or on fire?
      Jumping from that height would require a greater degree of danger for me, I would have slid down to the tail so that when I jumped the tail didn't take my head off when i hit the ground

      Gotta say there might be an element of Photoshop here too, just doesn't look natural

      Might be a lump of crud in the picture? There is someone in the foreground and looks a lot more grey.
    • NebrHogger
      Why would he jump? Perhaps he was severely scared. Assuming that's a person.

      I think your right @ENGINEER very likely a piece of shyte on the picture

      Being inside an aircraft taxiing on the taxi way in the middle of an airfield attack is a sure way to find out if there is a God however, after looking at the image over and over I believe you boys have got a very good point...... some smarta$#e has decided to "value add" for maybe dramatic purposes I reckon. I don't think it's crud on the image as it's too perfect and in just the right place, the image was quite exciting enough without buggering around with it.;)
