Dive bombing was both physically taxing and intellectually demanding on pilots. Before a bombing run, Stuka crews were required to go through a dizzying checklist that included the following steps:
Landing flaps at cruise position
Elevator at cruise position
Rudder trip at cruise position
Contact altimeter ON
Contact altimeter set to release altitude
Supercharger set at automatic
Throttle fully closed
Cooler flaps closed
Dive brakes open
As soon as the dive brakes were activated, the Stuka’s nose would automatically turn down and the plane would begin its descent. The maximum dive-speed was 600 km/h (373 mph).
Once the bombs were released, the contact altimeter warning would light. The pilot would toggle a knob on the control column that would trigger an automatic pull-out. It was a handy feature that prevented the plane from ploughing into the ground — during recoveries, crew were subject to a black-out inducing force of some six Gs.

Say again. overOtex. It dissolves the ear wax, you can hear it fizzing as it gets to work.
The doctors told me to put some Otex in my ears prior to syringing. When they peered in my ears prior to syringing, there was nothing they could syringe out.
It didn't do me any good, my ears were going on permanent strike in protest at the abuse they'd received.
