V-1 shot down by Coastal Anti-Aircraft Guns

V-1 shot down by Coastal Anti-Aircraft Guns
This remarkable photograph shows a V-1 exploding after being shown by coastal anti-aircraft guns. The long exposure film shows up the lines of tracer shells as well as the explosion itself. Proximity fuses were used against the V-1, and eventually 74% of them were destroyed while crossing the coastal anti-aircraft guns.
