I did not know they had women instructors for the Me-262. Do you think it was Hanna R. (can't spell her last name)?
I also did not know they trained to be a pilot for two years. Americans only trained about a year. Maybe that is why they were so good.
Thanks for posting this. Hope RB sees it !

Do you have anymore info Erich???
Posted 08 July 2004 - 03:32 PM
Yes in fact the raid on the Oder bridges will be covered in our massive work. It was to be held in secret and this was to involve literally a suicide mission of single-engine and jets to smash into the bridges over the Oder to stop the Soviet hordes.
do I have more on first person Stuka accts the man wants to know ! ........... hee, hee......wait and see friends

Dunno if I can keep a lid on my excitement!!! smile.gif
Looking forward to it Erich!
BTW, did you get a chance to read any of my masters???

my suggestion is to buy the JG 300 two volume set and our book fits in the end of the first volume and the beginnings of the second.
May I ask what variant of the Ju 87 are you most interested in to model ?, and no I have not seen your completed text either, I think we were waiting for you to finish it first, left at the first draft. so I am assuming then it is completed and submitted ?
more to come !

Sorry, but thats a great pic...
I am still wondering about the op on the op on the Oder River... But do you have any reports of Stukas at Crete or in support of airborne ops???

This particular edition is worth seeking out as it features a really striking Ian Wyllie painting on the cover, showing an 87B of Stg77 attacking a British cruiser during the Crete campaign. ( I'd love to have the original painting...)

Very interesting, the part that really got me, was this;
"I had maybe 30 tanks to my credit when I went into the hospital. So I got most of them from December '44 on. The last part of the war in the north the Russians had tanks everywhere. Our unit destroyed 20 to 30 tanks every day, just using the Stuka. It was a tank cemetery up there. But it would seem that the next day they would have 50 new ones. We stopped counting the number of tanks we destroyed. One time I destroyed three tanks in one pass. It was really an accident. The three tanks were lined up in a village and I lined up with the rear one. My captain came in from the side. I opened fire on the last and destroyed it but my guns would not stop firing, so I lined up on the next one, destroyed it, and then lined up on the front one and destroyed it also. My captain was pleased but upset because every time he would line up on a tank I would destroy it."
