Check out the San Diego Air and Space Museum on youtube. They have been interviewing pilots from WWII, Korea, and Vietnam in all kinds of airframes. The guy that does the interviews is an ex airforce pilot so most things get covered very well. The stories the pilots tell about the crazy or stupid stuff going on is always the best.

Thumbs up

Thanks for posting this.

Found one comment definitely interesting, how he said the Dora was better for turn fighting than the 109. I thought the 109 had better turn rate than the Dora? Or did he mean that the Dora had lighter stick forces so that made it better for turn fighting because you didn't have to throw your strength into the controls?

That was Awesome. What an Honor to interview him first hand. I would like to have a copy of these interviews, I hope maybe in the future they will be made available? Even for purchase?

Yeah, I found that funny too. Perhaps he answered a question about 109 referring to never using full brakes, then talked about 190 and village landing.

Eagerly waiting for part 2.

It appears he got the question confused with an earlier line of questioning about takeoff. It was asked whether he needed much rudder on takeoff. He explained that on the 109, you often needed to use brakes to steer the takeoff, but on the 190, the rudder had plenty of authority and you never needed to use the brakes.
