Qualcosa è caduto dal cielo ... #-o


A homeowner was left stunned after a large metal chunk of aircraft from an American B-52 bomber plummeted from the skies and landed in her front garden.
The unidentified woman contacted police after hearing a 'loud thud' outside her property in Brailes, Warwickshire, at around 5.30pm last Wednesday.
The villager went outside and discovered the piece had broken from the fighter plane ( :shock: ) and landed in her front garden, narrowly missing her home.
Aviation experts attended the scene and confirmed the debris was part of a giant B-52 bomber which had been based in the county at RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire.

Missione conclusa ... le 'Stratofortezze' rientrano alla base ...
Four B-52s and about 300 airmen returned to Barksdale AFB, La., after a four-week task force deployment to Europe that included training exercises throughout that continent and the Middle East.
The bombers from the 2nd Bomb Wing flew 32 sorties at its deployed home base of RAF Fairford, England, and trained with 13 total partner nations since first deploying last month.

Lamiere ... ondulate ...

Not only is the photo remarkable because it pictures a rare (not catastrophic) engine mishap, but also because another peculiar feature of the B-52 is clearly visible: the so-called “beauty wrinkles” on the front fuselage of the iconic bomber.
Our readers have noticed these “wrinkles” or “ripples“.
Commenting our post on social networks, many have suggested they may have been a sign of the airframes aging.
However, they have nothing to do with age of the B-52: they are the visual effect of the aircraft’s skin buckling.
