    That's a great video, thank you for sharing. It is a shame that the British could not shoot down more "doodlebugs" than they did, but at least only 28.75% made it to London.:)

    I seem to recall reading that only half the V-2's fired at London hit the Greater Metro area. I don't see many marked on the map that are outside this any idea exactly what criteria were used for listing on the map?

    Mossies and P-61's of the US 9th AF did not do a bad job either. a Chap named Brian has published a book on this very topic both from the ground and air defenses and then he goes on further ........
