An Fw-190 was recently hit by such bomblets in the SEOW campaign we are flying every Sunday on the 102nd_COOP_ded server.

I saw a TV show, some time ago, that theorized that that is how Glenn Miller died...I think the show was a joint BBC-PBS production, the film makers claimed that they found British bomber crewmen who saw a small British transport plane downed by British bombs that where being dumped in the channel (mission scrubbed)...The filmmakers theorized that the transport must have been Millers as it flew a common route to France and Miller was due at a show...

Interesting if true...Glenn Millers disappearance is still one of the great mysteries of air-o-history.

I read in a aircraft magazine a few years ago, of a story of an Eagle Aquadron night bomber Douglas Boston.

I forget the pilot's name, but he was on the approach to bomb a Luftwaffe airfield (which had mysteriously turned on its lights) and didn't realize there was a Stuka on the landing approach directly below him. when he dropped his bombs to blow holes in the runway, the bombs hit the Stuka and downed it, thus giving him one of the most strange kills IMO in wartime aviation

@Haigotron:

Yes, I remember your thread as in the link above. Amazing graphics whereby you were smothered by the green...

I think that there are a lot of undiscovered features in this sim that should be posted here.
