Two brothers from Berlin with an interest in WW2 technology have successfully restored a V2 rocket. The projectile, which features hydrogen power, a primitive guidance system and 200 kilos of high explosive, could be the first one of its type to fly for nearly 70 years.
"We have worked on this project for several years now", said Klaus Horsch, "my brother Adolf and I really want to see one in the sky again." With the first and only flight scheduled to take place early next Thursday, it will be aimed roughly towards London where Klaus hopes it 'might hit a Jew'.
Meanwhile two British brothers are planning to thwart their plans with a night raid, in a Lancaster they themselves have restored. "We hope to launch our attack under the cover of darkness", explained retired airman Johnny Hopstead. "We'll sneak into their own back yard maintaining radio silence, and disarm them with a session of greasy bum sex."
