“Tell It Like It Is!”


Years ago an Irish World War II Spitfire pilot, and flying ace, was speaking in a church, and reminiscing about his war experiences.

"In 1942," he declared, "the situation was really tough. The Germans had a very strong air force. I remember," he continued, "one day I was protecting the bombers and suddenly, out of the clouds, these Fokkers appeared."

There are a few gasps from the parishioners, and several of the children began to giggle.

"I looked up, and realized that two of the Fokkers were directly above me. I aimed at the first one and shot him down. By then, though, the other Fokker was right on my tail."

At this point, several of the elderly ladies of the church were blushing with embarrassment, the girls were all giggling, and the boys laughing loudly.

The pastor finally stands up and says, "I think I should point out that 'Fokker' was the name of a German-Dutch aircraft company who made many of the planes used by the Germans during the war."

"Yes, that's true," replied the old pilot, "but these Fokkers were flying Messerschmitt's."

I can offer a couple of additional thoughts on the parentage of the builders but will just let it go

Thanks for the morning laugh Joe Petrowsky . I was fascinated with Messerschmitt's designs when I studied the ME 262 in the sixties. Experts speculate that had Hitler used the ME262 as Messerschmitt intended he may have won the war. The ME262 was the 1st jet aircraft to be used in the World War.
