I was fortunate enough to meet Erich last year at Duxford. Back then he struck me as being somebody rather special. This wonderful video reaffirms that feeling. Look forward to the next fascinating installment. Many thanks.

It may be due to couple of reasons. For one, he might have fought in 109G6 and Fw190A6 at eastern front against Soviet planes, which were much better at tight turning at low speeds, than the P-51D. I would assume he fought western allies in his Fw190D9, meaning that he might have mostly fought P-47s, P-51s and Tempests.

Secondly, he might also be talking about different altitudes, Fw190D9 is much better high alt performer than both his previous airplanes at that hight.

The third option is that he just felt more comfortable in the airplane than in previous 109s and 190s.

Either way, I am realy hyped for the second part and can't wait too hear more

I don't know if like how there are two discussions about it. Why though?

The overall thing was chaotic, but thats normall when you love something and you have so much exprience with it.

So, many statements blend in together about A6/Bf109G/D9. So people have to watch out carefuly what the pilot was talking about.


I realy liked the description of landing approach and its like droping from 5th/7th floor @Nedum About the "wing doesn't drop" thing. He said that during landing at 180kph when you do the 3-point landing, the plane just drops on the ground evenly... but also very hard.

I loved every second of him talking and want more

When was that video recorded? Was it before the release of the Dora or after?

Before, a number of changes were made because of this discussion.

I must commed ED for showing this to public. It is a treasure that should be shown to all of humanity. Great job.

I wish somebody made such interviews with other pilots. I've seen only one similar venture with Bud Anderson. But interviewer didn't ask to much about P-51's flight characteristics.
There are many videos with US pilots and some with British but I haven't found alot of German, Japanese, or Russian pilot videos yet.

Thanks. I love to hear more from the other side of that war.

I've seen Willy Reshke talk about 190 and 109. I saw Gunther Rall speak about 109s and he had a pannel in Finland about his flying.

I've seen one Japanese pilot and some I remember seeing some Russian pilots talk about it in some TV shows. US Pilots though? Only Bud Anderson and stuff that was very brief in Dogfights serries. There is one short part from an interview with Gabreski.

All these are different from this one because they do not focus on the aircraft as much as Germans. The most was from Anderson, as he said he knew that P-51B was faster and more maneuvrable than Bf109G at around 25-30 thousand feet.

No I was talking about the first time he was steering the D9 in a loop.
He said very clear he had never this "shiver" of the wings even the plane stalls and the same about the rolling behavior. That his D9 never was snap roll so suddenly over the wingtip evern at low speeds.
