Nightwitches - Female Russian bombers who bombed Germany during WW2. They had old, noisy planes the engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid-flight to restart the props. To stop Germans from hearing them starting up the anti aircraft guns, theyd climb to a certain height, coast down to German positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair get the hell out of dodge. Their leader flew 200+ missions. WOW! Way to go Ladies!Sam Jamieson
