Nightwitches – Female Russian bombers who bombed Germany during WW2.  They had old noisy planes and engines that used to conk out halfway through their missions.  So they had to climb out on the wings mid-flight to restart the props.  To stop the Germans from hearing them starting up the anti aircraft guns, they would climb to a certain height and coast down to German positions to drop their bombs and restart their engines in midair.  Their leader flew 200+ missions and was never captured.
