Mr Monkey at RAF Hendon

"This shows why you should be careful with bombers"

To show what bombing is about, the museum has a replica of a bit of a ruined factory. And a Halifax bomber that was hit by anti-aircraft fire when it was attacking the Tirpitz. It crashed on a frozen lake in Sweden, where it caught fire, melted the ice, and sank to the bottom of the lake and stayed there until someone decided to pull it out of the watery depths.
