It's the The Bomb

"The National Collection of Aerial Photography has made an archive of images taken during World War Two available on the web.

Images of major events during the war such as the Normandy landings and Operation Market Garden - the failed attempt to secure vital bridges over the Rhine immortalised in the film A Bridge Too Far - taken from the air can be seen in the collection.

Other images taken from other theatres can also be seen, including a shot of Ban Kai in Thailand, the location of the Tamarkan Prisoner of War camp on the banks of the Kwai river. "
