January 24, 1961. A B-52 carrying two 24-megaton nuclear bombs crashed while taking off from an airbase in Goldsboro, North Carolina. One of the weapons sank in swampy farmland, and its uranium core was never found despite intensive search efforts to a depth of 50 feet. To ensure no one else could recover the weapon, the USAF bought a permanent easement requiring government permission to dig on the land.
Two Spitfires of the 303 squadron, which played a very significant role in the Battle of Britain, joining more than 150 fellow Polish pilots in this crucial encounter. The 303 shot down 126 enemy planes and lost merely eight pilots in the effort. Beautiful 3D rendering by Anders Lejczak (using Cinema4D R10 / BodyPaint3).
