Bf109 article

Recommended Posts

I quote from the article „[...] And -as my good friend 'Crump' points out- [...]“

 

You made him back in the forum. ;)

It fails to mention the principal reason for the large number of accidents like Hoeckner (the presence of a hump right in the middle of the runway at Ziegenhain).

"As our machines sped over it they would tend to bounce and the pilot often had the impression that his 109 was getting airborn. Of course not enough speed had build up.

The trick was to keep the aircraft on the ground, go down the other side of the hump and only ease off the ground when the speed had build up to 180-190kph".
