Indeed. My wife's grandfather drove the planes, that took them to those places, they never were. Had he been killed in action, it would have been in a training exercise, in Kansas.

Which caliber it fires, is really a moot point. Got it as a wallhanger, and wouldn't dare shoot it anyway. Any chance of a translation of this script? I know it's pretty hard to see. Oops, I thought...
