here is a story that could make a great anime. the night witches. A.K.A. the 588th night bomber squadron. an all female wing consisting of 1920 era wooden biplanes that flew night harassment and bombing missions in WW2 on the eastern front.
oh yeah, they were all women in there teens and early twenties. about 40 planes, two man (woman) aircrews. ran about 8 missions a night. no radio, only a map, and a compass and a plane that was mostly wood.
they were famous for doing crazying things.
flying in a group of three, two would be a target for ground fire, then the third woulds glide in for a bomb run.
the plane now was all but silent, only a tell tail whistling noise from the wires holding the wings together.

the germans thought it sounded like a witches broom in flight. hence, the name. german rumors had it they were enanced via medical projects. (ha!)

anyways, i thoght this would be a great anime anyway you put it.
i gotta run now!

I did a report on them for my military history of World War Two class. They really are fascinating.

Oh yeah, this would make for an interesting series. I'm not sure what they would do with it though.

I could see it being a nice little 12 episode series where they basically just toy around with the idea or they could build some plot to it and extend it to 26.

I'm thinking it would be more of a slice of life because you would probably explore each of the girl's backgrounds, home life, etc.

That's just my two cents.

Damn it, hearing you post this idea has me once again wondering just what the new Strike Witches will be about! Also about what KanColle will be about!
