You'd never believe it unless you seen it. (video)

One of those stories that you would honestly never believe it unless you could of seen it. I wonder for how many years, old RAF pilots would tell this tale and people would only think grandpa was crazy with such fishing stories. Well until the files were declassified and people realized it actually happened and grandpa was not crazy. (It could of also been in a news paper who knows) Anyway, enjoy enjoy

Also feel free to post other interesting videos related to WW2 here. =D

It is a good one, Mike has another one of a dogfight between a Storch recce plane and an American grasshopper, in which the American pilots shot down with their official issue pistols the Fiessler on a drive through pass, crazy lol.

This video reminder me of a WW1 dogfight. Perhaps the only pistol air dogfight of WW2. lol

Yeah Mark posts some very " I never heard of that " stories. I honestly have no idea where he finds them all. Perhaps his viewers share stories they found with him. I have been watching him for a long time and his videos are always very interesting and unexpected. The videos about the Tiger tank left abandoned in France, Hitler's car, and Goring's car were just a few amazing pieces of, I did not know that. Well worth checking his channel if anyone is interested.

I always knew that kind of thing must happen. Makes me feel less crappy when I get lost while flying and nearly landing on an enemy airfield now.

I bet those FW190s wished they were flying on WOL with GPS!?

The incident was publicly reported decades ago (Eric Brown, 1977) and these were not the first FWs to fall into British hands under adventurous condicitions.

Why wouldn't it be believable as Armin Faber's Fw190A-3 landed at Pembrey June 23 1942? This was the first Fw190 captured by the British.

Little bit of everything in this man's story. The first ten minutes are mostly about his time as a gunner on B-24 and he talks about German fighter tactics briefly. The rest is being shot down, helping the french resistance with sabotage, and returning to the states. It was a very interesting life story.

More of a technical video. Though it made me think about why all the new German tanks had transmission issues. **sabotage**

Interesting point made, if you cannot fix your tanks in the field then what good are they. Not having parts to fix combat damage was a major mistake on behalf of Germany.
