Seth/Ian, I had never heard about the Douglas A70 (Boston/Havoc), if that's what this is. This from wikipedia..
The Douglas A-20/DB-7 Havoc was a family of American attack, light bomber and night fighter aircraft of World War II, that served with several Allied air forces, principally those of the Soviet Union, United Kingdom, and United States. The DB-7 was also used by the air forces of Australia, South Africa, France, and the Netherlands during the war, and Brazil afterwards. The bomber aircraft was known as Boston among British and Commonwealth air forces, while the Royal Air Force night fighter variants were given the service name Havoc.
A little off topic. But this did give me an idea of getting back to the Smithsonian Air and Space museum and putting the MF lenses to work there. Either one of the two museum sites has WW2 planes in it.
A B-47 bomber is actually at a museum off I-95 in Georgia (near Savannah?). Many years ago on a drive up from Florida I planned a quick stop there after I found it on the web. They also had some Vietnam war-era planes there, the Phantom and a Mig side by side. Any pictures I may still have of those planes are likely from my old Canon S40.

Looking forward to the shots from the Heinkel factory Georg. In the meantime here is one of the inside of a Boston Bomber (I think!)
That's a really nice shot of a Boston - I've never seen the inside before. They are lovely planes and in Russian service a Boston regiment was the most highly decorated of the war, above the fighters etc. I can see the point that people wouldn't like machines made for war but the Boston is a favourite of mine.
Samy, going to the Air and Space Museum armed with MF lenses would be a lot of fun. Certainly a "target rich" environment!
