Dieter and a Luftwaffe Helper climb over the barricades holding Panzerfausts. Fulham Town Hall, Fulham, London, UK.

April 1945. Hitler is in the center of Berlin, 10 meters underground, surrounded by four-meter thick concrete walls, safe from any air attack the Allies can throw at him.

Now a team of aero engineers and carpenters rebuilds the glider in the same attic using the same materials, and they’ll use a bathtub full of concrete to catapult the glider off the roof.
