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.
I've seen the one with Gunther Rall. There are dozens of videos with many US pilots in different planes. There are plenty of these videos by this museum and they are interviewing whatever pilots they can before they are all gone. They had a hour and half interview with Bud Anderson.

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.
See post #56.

Check their playlist but they have more not listed on it. I haven't watched this one yet but he was a FW190/ME262 pilot.

Can we start a new thread with these interviews and sticky it? Let's let Mr. Erich Brunotte have this one.

(re: Message #1)

Hi,

I just found this video posted in "Official Updates" and watched it through.

Good stuff.

Dora is my favorite fixed wing aircraft in DCS. I have most of the DCS jets, all 3 copters, the Korea jets, and the 3 WWII era planes.

The California Crab is how I have been flying the WWII era sim planes even before I found DCS. It is performed by me just as Erich describes, not only to lose speed quickly at landing, but can drop altitude really fast and is a great way to force an overshoot for the less experienced guy on my six. Pretty hard to successfully try that with the more experienced guys. There is a local guy that tows gliders here in my town. On his way down, after the glider releases, he can lose altitude very, very quickly doing that maneuver even with more dropped wing.

Good info in the video to use in game.

Yeah, I need the English captions, though my heritage is from Germany.

Thanks.

Ok, can we dream about having each of those modeled on day in DCS :-)

The "T6" would be one of my favorite :-)
Sure! Sounds good to me. Start working on the Corsair, now.

Don't know if I am going to last that long before everything comes out, though. I am age 63, might have 20 years left, less if dementia kicks in.

Took me forever to get the P-51 down. Even with that under my belt, the Dora was the hardest to learn to date of the fixed wing aircraft and landing it was the issue. Me, too, I don't touch the brakes, just let her roll out.

I wonder how the DCS sim flies now with Erich at the controls since changes were made? Is he happy with her, now?
