Enjoy the shear beauty of the Belle and the gruesome terror of the Luftwaffe's Bête (beast).

17and 24 against strays of attacking 190 and 109. All this in COLOR for REAL and during 37 min!

Enjoy!
WOW. Thank you! GRacias! piel de gallina!!!

It is thought the pilot survived the crash and initially used his parachute for shelter before making a desperate and futile attempt to reach civilisation by walking out of the desert.
The RAF airman, believed to have been Flight Sergeant Dennis Copping, 24, was never seen again.
The single-seater fighter plane was discovered by chance by Polish oil company worker Jakub Perka exploring a remote region of the Western Desert in Egypt.
The location is about 200 miles from the nearest town.
Most of its cockpit instruments are intact and it still had it guns and ammunition before they were seized by the Egyptian military for safety reasons.
There are also signs of the makeshift camp the pilot made alongside the fuselage.
No human remains have been found but it is thought the pilot's decomposed body may lay anywhere in a 20 mile radius of the plane.
The RAF Museum at Hendon, north London, has been made aware of the discovery and plans are under way to recover the aircraft and display it in the future.
A search will also be launched in the slim hope of finding the remains of the lost airman.
The defence attache at the British embassy in Cairo is due to visit the scene in the near future in order to officially confirm its discovery and serial number.
But there are fears over what will be left of it after locals began stripping parts and instruments from the cockpit for souvenirs and scrap.
Historians are urging the British government to step in sooner rather than later and have the scene declared as a war grave so it can be protected before the plane is recovered.
Andy Saunders, a military aviation historian, said: "The aviation historical world is hugely excited about this discovery.
"This plane has been lying in the same spot where it crashed 70 years ago. It hasn't been hidden or buried in the sand, it has just sat there.
"It is a quite incredible time capsule, the aviation equivalent of Tutankhamun's Tomb. It is hundreds of miles from anywhere and there is no reason why anyone would go there."
Mr Saunders said there was evidence the Ft Sgt Copping survived the crash as there evidence he used the plane for shelter and tried to restart it.
But inevitably he would have walked to his death.
"Once he had crashed there nobody was going to come and get him," he said.
"It is more likely he tried to walk out of the desert but ended up walking to his death. It is too hideous to contemplate."
Flt Sgt Copping was the son of a dentist and came from Southend, Essex.
In 1942 he was a member of the RAF's 260 Squadron, a fighter unit based in Egypt during the North Africa campaign.
By June of that year the Allies were retreating from 'Desert Fox' Erwin Rommel and his German forces.
On June 28 Ft Sgt Copping and another airman were tasked with flying two damaged Kittyhawk P-40 planes from one British airbase in northern Egypt to another for repair.
During the short flight Ft Sgt Copping lost his bearings, went off course and was never seen again.
Ft Sgt Copping's name appears on the El Alamein war memorial. It is not thought that there are any immediate family members of his left in the UK.
Captain Paul Collins, the British defence attache to Egypt, confirmed there will be a search carried out of the area around the plane in the hope of finding his remains.
The Kittyhawk was an American manufactured plane used by the RAF in its desert campaign.[The Telegraph]
OMG! poor guy .. how in the hell did he get lost when flying with a wingman, if the wingman returned ok ? (I assume he and the 2nd pilot flew together)

This was covered when the aircraft was first discovered earlier this year.

The aircraft was flying alone on a ferry flight to a repair depot to fix it's landing gear, which were stuck in the down position. It was seen to fly off course and was never heard from or seen again till this year.

The aircraft has since been looted and vandalized by local Arabs and is probably now a total loss.

Default Japaneze Kamikaze - color footage

Hi all,

Here is one the best story telling on the subject I have seen so far. Color footage, complete description of the events and mention of the sociological roots and background that led the Japan toward this extreme measure.

The only thing that I can think against it is the fact that they seemed to have choose deliberately to put aside the atrocities committed by the JA that marked a trend toward the disrespect of human life among their Generals as a way to speed up their career.

Anyway, fantastic footage and a very mature comment. You can see color archive of a flight of Betty carying Aka being intercepted by F6 Hellcat !!

Here is a new one, slightly different from all the others.

The story tells us the fascinating project of the Daedalus flight in 1988, a recreation of the legendary flight across the Aegean see by man powered flight.

You can find inside good stuff about lifting theory, easily explained and the importance of modern computer sciences (Computational Fluid Dynamics - CFD) in the quest for the most efficient design.

An aircraft is a vehicle that is able to fly by gaining support from the air, or, in general, the atmosphere of a planet. It counters the force of gravity by using either static lift or by using the dynamic lift of an airfoil, or in a few cases the downward thrust from jet engines.

Although rockets and missiles also travel through the atmosphere, most are not considered aircraft because they do not have wings and rely on rocket thrust as the primary means of lift.

The human activity that surrounds aircraft is called aviation. Crewed aircraft are flown by an onboard pilot, but unmanned aerial vehicles may be remotely controlled or self-controlled by onboard computers. Aircraft may be classified by different criteria, such as lift type, propulsion, usage, and others.

Hi all,

here is a new video about the how to fly and fight in the P-39.

I selected this one as there is a good share of info about tight turning an airplane, fly in formation, stall, spin, rudder use during acrobatic flight, firing pass etc...

Enjoy !
