Thanks for identifying where to find the "Raiders March" in this episode. I'll have to go back and watch it to look for it. I love all of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, but I agree that "Attack of the Hawkmen" is a particularly well done, exciting episode. (Especially as a fan of Peanuts comics and all of Snoopy's escapades fighting against the Red Baron- it's really fun to see an actual historical portrayal of him fighting against Indy!)

VERY COOL news, Skylover, though I doubt we'll get to see it anytime soon, if ever. Someone asked him about "the odds" but he hasn't answered.

It also looks like he's only now finding out about the longer Canadian broadcast versions. I discovered those differences c.20 years ago when transferring my VHS tapes to DVD and it makes me feel like starting a Twitter account just to talk to him. He needs some Young Indy education.

Lightbulb Ahlhorn Explosion!

Stumbling upon some information about the airship base at Ahlhorn reveals that it really did suffer a massive explosion during WW1 and was almost completely destroyed. I thought this was a fictional event in the show but, once again, it has basis in reality:

"On 5 January 1918 an accident happened: due to a fire a hydrogen-filled airship (LZ-87, Marine L47) exploded, reducing it and the surrounding area to rubble within 40 seconds. The blast was so enormous fragments fell as far as Wildeshausen, and the resulting pressure wave was said to have been felt in Bremen, 40 kilometers (about 25 miles) away. When it was all over the hydrogen plant and hangars III (Alrun) and IV (Alix) were fully destroyed, hangars I (Aladin) and II (Albrecht) were severely damaged, while hangars 5 and 6 had received minor damage. Altogether the Marine had lost airships L46, L47, L51, L58 and SL20 and suffered 15 killed, 30 severely wounded and 104 lightly wounded. In order to get operational again hangars 5 and 6 were rushed back into service, allowing operations to resume in April. The event appeared to be an accident, but sabotage was never fully dismissed."
