    Nightwitches - Female Russian bombers who bombed

    Germany during WW 2. 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,

    they'd 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 & was never captured.
