Thanks Aufk.
Now for my question:
In june of 1942, the USA delivered some AT-6 Texan aircraft to their Mexican allies. What is "special" about tis Mexican aircraft? What did the Mexicans do with them?

Good Luck!

For dive-bombing actually. One of them even attacked a German U- Boot.
Anyway, you got close enough and I don't want to hold this thread down any more.

Here is a multi-part question.

1. What American professional athlete was assigned the mission of assassinating an important figure of WW II Germany?

2. Why was he selected for this assignment?

3. Why did he not carry it out?

(1). Morris (Moe) Berg.

(2). He was fluent in German so was considered ideal to take in the complicated language in Heisenberg's lecture in Zurich.

(3). After the lecture he thought that the chance of Germany producing an Atom bomb was extremely remote so the plot was called off.

He also was well enough versed in physics to be able to judge from what H. was saying to be able to guess how close the Germans might be to making a bomb.

But that's close enough. Your turn.

OK, sounds somewhat offtopic, but isn't (Hey, that's a clue!)

on May 20./22. 1944 Germany exportet 12 factory-new Me-109 G. The "payment" they recived where kind of "unusual" as well as the reciver of the planes.

Who got a dozen Gustavs in 1944 and what was the "price".
