My fav is that to keep german Uboats from seeing attacking allied aircraft- they mounted super bright LIGHTS all over the front of the plane.

It was determined that aircraft are spotted because they are DARKER than the surrounding sky- so having them decked out in kleig lamps made it much harder to spot them in time to dive before they could drop a bomb or depth charge on the boat.
I guess my only question is. What stopping the Uboat from diving when they see the lights

from a distance- the Yehudi lights can't be seen as lights- because the sky is just as bright. they simply wash out the dark profile of the airplane.
the result was attacking planes that Uboats could spot 12 miles out- could get less than a mile out before being spotted.
