The B-25 Comes Home

The National WWII Museum shuts down traffic in New Orleans to receive its latest addition: a historic B-25 most recently housed in the Mojave Desert and before that an amusement park. The plane's progress is viewable on Flickr.

T-34 - Takes a Lickin' and It's Still Tickin'

Just how sturdy was the classic Soviet WWII tank, the T-34? In Estonia, once the site of the ferocious Eastern Front, a team's pulled an entire tank from the bog where, they say, Nazi forces entombed the vehicle at the War's end some 65 years ago. The German markings indicate the hard-pressed Wehrmacht used the vehicle as their own. The T-34 still runs. No doubt with a lot of WD-40. Amazing.
