What happens in this video ?
At the beginning of the Second World War, British invented the bouncing bomb to destroy enemy dams and battleships. To drop such bombs, the airplane had to fly exactly 20 meters above water at 400 km/h.
This video shows a bouncing bomb test that ended badly. The bomb bounced a bit too high on the water, and hit the tail of the plane. It resulted in a dramatic crash.
