The Past Of These 15 Abandoned Airplanes Represent A Haunting Tragedy

These eerie pictures show all that remains of a fleet of World War II fighter planes. The rotting planes lie derelict at an abandoned aeroplane graveyard in Newbury, Ohio, amongst overgrown foliage and scrap metal.

"The Night Witches were Russian lady bombers who bombed German lines in WW2. Their ancient planes used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid-flight to restart the props.

Their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured."
