    On his final mission he flew so low he dug his propeller into the ground causing his p-47 to crash. He was captured by the German's 2 days later the war ended in Europe.

    also damn near washed out of flight school. Wasn't "getting' the mechanics of flight. Passed a pass/fail check ride.And see AOD_Caash95...Trees/ground are the natural enemies of strafing P47's!

    Every unknown soldier that gave his/her live to make sure we had a future.....




    For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed,
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still.

    Actually have a Russian tank ace who impressed me unlike many of the German aces, Dmitry Lavrinenko only fought for 2.5 months before being killed but racked up 58 tank and SPG's destroyed. It was when he was going back to report his 52nd tank killed he got hit by mortar fire. So 2.5 x 30= 75 days rough this means he was averaging .77 tanks or SPGs a day not a very boring life for him.

    Ahh the white death, the russians wanted him dead so bad and he did all that with an iron sight, i know some people who can barely hit the target with a scope at 300-400 yds. This man is an ace in his own way.

    My personal favorite is Hans Joachim Marseille, the Star of Africa, followed closely by Erich "Bubi: Hartmann and Gunther Rall.

    My 109/Trops all wear Marseille's paint scheme. My normal ones wear Hartmann's.

    Otto Carius. Dude got wounded a bunch and just kept coming back. Recently finished Tigers in the Mud. The way he did business is how officers should be. Calm, caring, and ruthless in the face of the enemy.
