Who and when attacked ground targets from aircraft with darts?
In combat aviation, not only bombs and missiles were used against ground targets. During the First World War, metal darts, were widely used. Sharpened arrows the size of a pencil, being thrown out of special cassettes, when approaching the ground, developed destructive speed and strength and effectively hit clusters of infantry or cavalry, and the whistle accompanying them was a kind of psychic attack on people and horses. Flashhets were invented by the French and were also adopted by the German and Russian armies.
In what country can anyone play the piano at train stations?

Why, many years before the installation of the Statue of Liberty in New York, was her hand with a torch standing separately?
The Statue of Liberty was conceived as a gift to France for the centenary of the US Declaration of Independence, with the French pledging to build and erect the statue, and the Americans - the pedestal. By 1876, neither one nor the other had time to do, and fundraising, especially in the United States, progressed slowly. However, in France, a hand with a torch was already ready, and it was brought to the World's Fair in Philadelphia to advertise the project, and after the exhibition it was transported to New York. Visitors for a fee could climb the torch balcony. Only ten years later, the pedestal was built, and the Statue of Liberty took its current place.
