Yuck...

yep, peat bogs really preserve human remains, there have been 10,000 year old bodies retrieved from bots that were somewhat preserved.

It is simply unbelievable that his body remained so preserved! He was 22 years old, same age as me. Sobering!

Poor guy. Amazing frozen frame. Many 22 y.o. pilots were at the yokes of the mighty B17s over Germany, too. Hans-Joachim Marseille passed away at the age of 22 as well, with a tally of 158.

Poor dude. He probably unstrapped himself to be able to easier leave the plane after the crashlanding, only to enable himself to be knocked out by instrument panel/gunsight at the impact...

People die in war.
It surprises me that poeople don't recognize that when playing war-glorifying (or whatever...) games.

Ever wondered hat remains of the pilot when he crashes straight down?

Spoiler: A bucket's enough to "bury" him afterwards...

And even more younger ones: in a dogfights episodie there was a B-17 pilot with 18.

In the Lufwaffe, due to the shortage of pilots, there were cases of pilots with less then 18 flying. I know the case of one Fw 190 pilot, that lived here in Brazil and entered in combat in the WF with only 17 years old.

Some have problems comprehending what happens inside a human flesh filled, fabric or tinfoil covered frame (with absolutely no armor) when exposed to fire from 12 machineguns, so why not this? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Well, there's a lot of money in the war-glorifying stuff: games, movies, and even toys are among this market.
