        Loved his interview in which he talked about taking on the ME262 with the P51. He said “ I was flying along when I spotted a ME262 making its final to land. I pulled up and came in behind him and fired a burst into the rear of the jet. It burst into flames and went down crash landing in the woods short of the runway. Wasn’t very sporty but hell, it’s war”
