Books arrived

I received copies of "Focke-Wulf Fw 190D camouflage & markings" "Part I" and "Part II" books, which I will be doing a review of later.


On a quick glance, the amount of photographs and information I had never seen before blew me away instantly. Being primarily interested in photographs, especially excerpts of colour video and colour photos was an extremely pleasant surprise, and revealed a lot even with a passing view.

Simply turning a few pages confirmed these were not a bad purchase by any means.

Separate colour profile that came along the "Part II", is "Black 5, 401392"


"Revisiting Dora 9", interview with Erich Brunotte

It is finally here!


Topics range from takeoff and landing the 109/190 to dogfights and general engine management.

Some important things Brunotte mentioned, very relevant to DCS pilots (ANY flight sim, really):

- Always 3-point landing, whether 190 or 109
- Try to keep your landing approach at 200km/h or above
- You very rarely need to apply brakes on takeoff, rudder is enough

Definitely worth a watch to anyone interested in WW2 aviation, despite some inconsistensies of his statements, which I can only blame on 70-year old memories.
