Hiroshima seen from the air

Here is a city, completely flattened.

from WikiPedia

About nine-tenths of all buildings in Hiroshima were damaged or completely destroyed by the atomic bombing and the fires that it ignited.

This aerial photograph is signed by Paul W. Tibbets, the pilot of the Enola Gay and the commanding officer of the mission that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima.
