      Hi Dragondog-
      Is it possible that you have info on a TF-51D? We are trying to find a OAT part number. I saw in a previous post that you added information on this plane from a manual. Could you possibly help me out? Thank you in advance.

        Hi wirelady - I posted info on Dallas in 1944 vs Temco TF-51D in 1951 by serial block range. Is this what you need?

        Regards,

        Bill

      Hi dragondog
      A document of 1.17 1945 showed that 4 DB605DC were delivered to LuffWaffe but didn't work well and none of the front line fighters equipped with this new DB605 variant. So, did BF109Ks with DB605DC ever go into field before the war was over.

      Hi dragondog
      Is there any data about BF-109G late and BF109K's drag or the the calculation. I've seen a statement that due to the less wetted area, 109G/K has lower total drag than P-51. I don't have any data about 109's drag. But I the sea level speed comparison shows me that's very unconvincing , even 67" mustang Mk.IV faster than the 1.98ata K4 at sea level with much less power.

        I just noticed that EAS can be used to calculate the total drag, just need some time.

      Bubblehead - Jim Duffy was Bud's best friend. My father was Bert Marshall, Jr and was Bud's 354FS CO before he became Deputy Group, the 355th CO. Dad very much respected and loved Bud and John Fortier is my friend.

      Hi Drgondog,

      I'm a former student of Bud Fortier's from Dover, N.H. I had him for fifth grade at Horne St. Elementary school in the seventies. I remember hearing stories of the 354th when he read aloud excerpts from his upcoming book and singing along with 'Daisy' and 'Yellow Bird' as he banged away on the piano in the afternoons. If you're the 'Duff' he was always referring to, then it is a pleasure to meet you.

      Hi DG

      I cant find the thread even....it was an argument about P-51 losses and victories, which I know is your cup of tea. Argument has blown over, so dont stress. if i find the thread and the specific exchange, I will forward the details

      How fares everything in DGs world?

      Regards

      Michael

      Unfortunately it really does take away from the great exchange of facts, views and opinions. It really does...

      Hi DG

      Was wondering if i could interest you at all in a small bar room brawl i am having about aa perennial BS subject that keeps coming up in the forum again and again. Its the old "the LW was outnumbered over Germany by hordes of P-51s". Im doing my best but this is really your backyard and was hoping you might be interested

      The thread is http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/aviation/realistic-max-speeds-ww2-fighters-speeds-late-109s-30696.html?highlight=

      Have a look and see if you are willing to correct the bullshitometer


      Regards
