A fine man.
Steve and the team have done his memory proud.
I saw the live archeological dig for this fellas aircraft and they chatted to him throughout the programme. A REAL HERO in the true sense of the word, not some wendy footballer that scores a last minute winner.
Sadly today he'd probably be NM&D for damaging his aircraft and pulled up by the HSE for not carrying out a risk assessment.
But good on him and i hope theres more people out there for the future.
Story of his Out-of-Ammo attack here
saw a programme and he said that he saw how thin the tail was and thought that his wing would go through it
not that he missed the cockpit and hit the tail
extremly brave guy
A brave man, ramming at high altitude would be dangerous, at low level all but suicidal.
The Russians called that technique 'Tarran', and was an authorised method of bringing down Fascist bombers. The top Tarran ace got, if I recall, three kills using that method. The problem is that once the two aircraft made contact, the result was anything but predictable for the 'attacker'
