POTD — The Golden BB

Thought this was an interesting photo. What you are looking at is an anti-aircraft round that has passed through this plane’s prop while in flight.

I have heard rumors that during WWII soldiers and airmen subscribed to the “golden BB” theory. The flack and volume of fire didn’t matter. If it was your time, the Golden BB had your name on it and would smack you right between the eyes. At least that’s how I understand it.

Being familiar with statical models and probability, I don’t subscribe to such superstitions. But looking at this photo…it does give one pause.
