With one engine (depending on damage type) I can fly the He111 and land it perfectly well, its a different beast from the Bf110.

Very nice, and rewarding!... I have a fond memory in the other game spits vs 109 server. Was attacked and lost a engine He-111, huge trailing black smoke all the way back to LaHave. The landing was not the success

Same goes for the P38 in the ETO and PTO..

Flying on one engine was one of it's selling points and/or requirments..

So much for the theory that if you lose an engine, you half to get them down asap being a characteristic of all twins that some want us belive!

I have got home in CLOD on one engine in the BF110 numerous times. Its only possible imo at light weights (makes sense). Obviously start altitude helps. I have been as low as 1000m mid channel and done it ok. Net flight path is slightly negative throughout. As soon as the engine fails set failed engine Prop pitch full coarse (be nice if we could feather it), close Oil and coolant Rads on the failed side. Fly at around 250Kmh which is close to Min drag. On approach only use about 1/3rd flap max.

The Mosquito could do aerobatics on one engine.

A test pilot also did some aerobatics in a B-26. Iirc this was a demonstration flight to show the B-26 could fly on one engine.

There was no Mossie plant in Ottawa. It was in Downsview (Toronto).

And on the other hand we have Crumpps assessment of how it was done some 70 years after the fact, i.e.

You lose an engine, you want to get them down. Especially in combat.
So it is decision time again..

CASE 1) WWII accounts of or by WWII military trained pilots on how it was done in WWII
CASE 2) Crumpps modern civi trained pilot assessment of how it was done in WWII

The choice is yours!
