Venují Radlictí obcané / Dedicated by Citizens of Radlice

The real tragedy at the end of WW2. According to one version was the whole raid a mistake. The objective should be Dresden. But part of the planes departing from British airports (due to a disturbance of the main radar and bad weather over Western Europe) missed Dresden and threw their bombs to Prague.

Podle jedné verze došlo k celému náletu omylem, nebot cílem mely být Dráždany. Cást letadel startujících z britských letišt se prý vlivem poruchy radiolokátoru hlavního navigátora a špatného pocasí nad západní Evropou odchýlila již nad Nemeckem od stanoveného kurzu a místo na Dráždany zamírila nad Prahu. O ztráte orientace mluvil i zástupce vedoucího skupiny letounu.
