My great grandfather is in the copilot seat of this exact plane when the picture was taken. This was also the mission in which he earned his Purple Heart, getting hit by shrapnel from German anti-aircraft artillery (AAA). @WWII @B-17 @379bombergroup @mightyeighthairforce
Google Drive has this neat little automatic list generator built into it. Here’s how it works:
1) Open a spreadsheet.
2) Enter two related items in cells A1 and A2.
3) Highlight A1 and A2. Hold down option (or “ctrl” for Windows) and drag the lower right corner down.
Boom! You’ve got a list. Here’s some more we did, but try it for yourself and send us any funny/weird/creepy ones you come up with.

A behind the scenes look at how it all got started.
The Derweze area is rich in natural gas. While drilling in 1971, Soviet geologists tapped into a cavern filled with natural gas. The ground beneath the drilling rig collapsed, leaving a large hole with a diameter of 70 metres (230 ft.) To avoid poisonous gas discharge, it was decided the best solution was to burn it off.Geologists had hoped the fire would use all the fuel in a matter of days, but the gas still burns today. Locals have dubbed the cavern “The Door to Hell”.
