I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience - I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve.... Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share. Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.

Die Versuchsanstalten Peenemünde waren von 1936 bis 1945 das größte Rüstungszentrum Europas. Auf einer Fläche von 25 km² arbeiteten bis zu 12 000 Menschen gleichzeitig an Fernlenkwaffen, am bekanntesten der weltweit erste Marschflugkörper Fi103 / "V1" und die erste jemals funktionierende Großrakete A4 / "V2". Beide wurden als Terrorwaffen gegen Zivilbevölkerung konzipiert, größtenteils von Zwangsarbeitern gefertigt und gelangten als „Vergeltungswaffen“ ab 1944 zum Einsatz im Zweiten Weltkrieg. Das Historisch-Technische Museum Peenemünde arbeitet die Geschichte der Entstehung und Nutzung dieser Waffen auf. Die Ausstellungen dokumentieren, wer in Peenemünde arbeitete, wie die Menschen lebten und warum die enorm aufwändigen Waffenprojekte durchgeführt wurden. www.peenemuende.de
