Russian Cruiser Aurora

On the night of 7-8 November, 1917, a salvo was fired giving the signal for the storming of the Winter Palace bringing the Bolsheviks to power in a coup that changed world history. That blank shot came from the protected cruiser Aurora, symbol of the Russian Revolution and the oldest surviving ship of the Russian Navy, having fought during the Russo-Japanese War of 1904 1905, WWI and the Great Patriotic War when her cannons were used to defend Leningrad.

BUILT TO RACE

Warbirds, fighter aircraft with no real purpose post-World War 2, proved that they were definitely not ready to be sent to obscurity. Collectors had snapped up many of them but some a new career as competitors in the Reno Air Races when they started up again in 1964. However, there was a downside to this for collectors as warbirds cannot fly without spare parts and the Reno racers were using them all.

The Covid Thing

I’m not one who generally subscribes to mass opinion or hysteria, tending to generally find my own way through something by fact-checking various outlets or just steering clear of the emotions.
