    Wow! I can't believe nobody has commented on this Micdrow. That was a lot of footage I have never seen before.

    Great post.

    first full minute shows LW fighters getting shot down. From 1.16 to 2.00 is JG 300 commander Walter Dahl coming over to congratulate IV.Sturm/JG 3 pilots on their victores on 7-7-44 with fly overs by the blue-black engine cowled SturmFw's of JG 3. this is the short exerpt as I have several minutes of footage of the greetings and fly overs, with good details of the parked A/c which include white and black 13 Fw 190A-8's and others. Ossi Romm with the RK big smile on his face, and other aces.

    later pilots walking out to their Bf 109G-6's of I./JG 3 in January/February 1944

    Very nice.. made me think. Which fighter aircraft had the greatest proportion of aces?

    That is, not which one hosted the most aces but which one hosted the greatest proportion of aces to units manufactured?

    Thats a good guess. It's probably something screwy like the gladiator or buffalo..
