Listen to a real play-by-play of a dogfighter over the channel
 
Guys, you HAVE to listen to this! My gosh...the chills I got as I listened to the reporter give a play by play of an live dogfight over the channel. You can hear AA going up around and also the machine gun fire of the aircraft. Listen to the reporter "squeal" like a little girl when he witnesses the spitfires on the tail of the ME109. You can also hear the engines roar in the background.

It sounded a bit like he was commenting a football match.

"Synopsis

This report on an encounter between RAF Hurricanes and Luftwaffe Junkers caused controversy among listeners when it was broadcast the next day. The correspondent's tone was thought to be unsuitable as he appeared to get carried away with excitement at being in the right place at the right time with recording equipment to hand.

Did you know?

Unfortunately, the German pilot that Gardner thought he had spotted bailing out and landing in the sea was actually RAF Pilot Officer Michael Mudie, who died of his injuries the following day. In this particular dogfight, three Hurricanes were attempting to deal with over 40 German aircraft. "

I guaranty his adrenalin was very high. So those who think it was inappropriate, can kiss my Royal A$$.

As far as I remember, the sounds were added later by the BBC.

Why do all english always say "Meshersmitt" instead of "Messerschmitt"?
