Bloody hell....!!!!!!! I think you should put a very clear warning next to the link that these pictures are VERY graphic. If you don't want to see some poor guys with their brains blown out in situe and then being dragged around, don't look!

Nasty stuff indeed...

No thanks  Smile I was expecting pictures of an aircraft only from the first picture shown in the thread, not including nice shots of the bodies, hence I felt it apt (for the sake of some younger browsers certainly) to ask the thread starter to add the 'Graphic' notes, which he kindly did.
