    Went to the local Sunday markets and bought a small book titled CENTURY with many interesting photos from the 20th century. The captioning is lacking in quality but I'm willing to forgive them as the price tag was only $4.00.

    Titled "German aircraft dogfighting over Rotterdam with Dutch Fokker G-21s."
    Fake?...

    Looks like there's some cool photos in there...

    But I don't know about that "dogfight"...the aircraft are all lined up, and seem too close (bunched up)... :|

    G-21's? :lol:
    I've never heard of photo's of that particular dogfight. It looks like being faked. I don't think there was a D.XXI present at that time like the 2nd one form the right. If these are real images of that dogfight (even a combined one) it would be unique.

    Oops! My captioning is just as bad! Sorry Marcel I should've typed G1 (it's getting late here. :|) It still looks fake.

    "Near Berlin and surrounded by Russians, an SS man evaded capture by pulling the pin from a grenade in his belt, causing more to explode"
