Making Surreal Photography before Photoshop

Phillipe Halsman takes a photo of Salvador Dali with cats in New York, in 1948.

The paintings and furniture are suspended from the ceiling, the photographer's wife holds the chair. The cats are thrown in the air together with the buckets of water. Dali jumps. Halsman takes the picture.
(the cats were thrown into the air 28 times; the shooting lasted 6 hours)

Nazi Photoshop Power

This picture is pretty obviously a fake.
UPDATE: There is the whole myth history about them, according to wiki. This article has more pictures and designs.

A blueprint? Supposedly from the Nazi Archives:

But this one seems to be real, a recreation of a giant plane.
If you know what plane is shown here, please let us know.

UPDATE: This appears to be "Kalinin K-7" (more info), only with more guns added in this CG model. (thanks, Sergey)

How would you ever retrieve three wet cats 28 separate times for this photo shoot? That takes some serious catnip.

apparently they spent some time bringing the cats back to senses :)

The Nazi UFO photo is not a fake. Read some of it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_UFOs and check the external links - they were building such hmm vehicles? as I have seen on Discovery Channel they were supposed to work on hovercraft-like fans only capable to lift them more than few inches above ground :) Similar small saucers have been built more recently and some of them even work in a limited way.

the plane on photo is almost Kalinin K-7. In this 3d it has a lot of cannons which is not true.
here is link to Russian page on wikipedia:
