I took this picture recently, it's a part of a fusalage of a German aircraft WW2 , shot down in England, not sure if it was a dog fight or ground, also I'm not sure which type it comes from, which doesnt matter I stood there just thinking about the moment preceding it's demise, the fear of the crew, what misery if any it caused before it was shot down, this scene sent shivers down my spine as I stood there in a empty hanger on my own, looking at this piece of mangled metal, what if it could talk !!!!!!!.

If you had been in or near to Coventry during, or in London during the Blitz ( I was)..... you would be only too pleased to see that heap of nazi junk shot down.....and wouldn't have given much thought to its crew, who had been intent on causing death and destruction.

You, are right about it being a very powerful reminder of .....Terrible Times........Good Pic.

I did mention about the misery that it may have caused before been shot down, it just struck me as a very sad piece of history, we had one shot down or crashed in Peterborough, in the Kings School area, thankfully I wasn't born then, And would have probably have been pleased to see one like this if I had, as I understand they did drop some bombs in Peterborough, think they were after the Cathedral, but got the river instead.

I do belive this is the tail section of Rudolp Hess's ME 110 shot down over Scotland, if any help.

It is the imperial war museum at Duxford Cambridgeshire , I saw it again yesterday, there is another piece of an aircraft still covered up, and I'm really interested to see what's under the cover. the info you have given is a great help. Thank you.
