Animated in a style similar to Russian propaganda, this video by The Animation Workshop showcases the impressive skills of a team of 3rd year Character Animation & CG Art students from Denmark. Yes, it was a slow news day for me.

An elderly, soft-spoken veteran recalls when she joined the Soviet Air Force’s first all-female bombing squad. She reminisces about her friend Katja, and how they made the best of their antique equipment, struggled with being ostracised from their male comrades, and earned the fearful German nickname 'Nachthexen'.
