Today I made the final upload of more than 7000 flights of fighter airplanes in WWII. In this small video you see the process of coding all locations where the crew of the airplanes crashed. You see only 80 flights geocoded of the more than 7000 flights I have 6989 of these locations to go. It will keep me busy for a few hours.
It always hits me to read all the names of the crew members. Many of the flights of the Battle of Britain are included.
Most of the flights are in the western part of Europe, starting from an English airstrip or airfield. Later airplanes could start from airfields on the mainland
This film shows in 3 minutes the death of about eighty 20 year old boys.
