Retired German brothers restore V2 rocket

V2 Rocket

Organizers advise spectators to wear ear muffs

Two brothers from Harold’s German twin town of Koch have successfully restored a V2 rocket.

Despite us all being friends now, the brothers share a love of WW2 technology and are keen to demonstrate their superior engineering.

The projectile, which features an ethanol powerplant, a primitive guidance system and 200 kilos of high explosive, could be the first one of its type to fly for nearly 70 years.

“We have worked on this project for several years now”, said Klaus Hummel. “There are none of these magnificent machines currently in service, we think it will go down rather well at one of your popular airshows.”

With the first and only flight scheduled to take place over the weekend, it will be aimed roughly towards London where Anders hopes it ‘might hit a chip shop’. But Coventry has insisted they’re a much more worthy target, pointing out that it was ‘ages since the place was last flattened’.

Meanwhile two British brothers are planning to thwart their plans with a night raid of their own, in a Halifax bomber they themselves have restored.

“We’re launching our attack under the cover of darkness”, explained retired airman Johnny Hopstead. “We’ll sneak into their own back yard maintaining radio silence, and disarm them with a Werther’s Original and a display of thirty army cadets doing stunts on a moped.”
