Awesome video!  I didn't realize the germans had fuel injection back then.  Yet another reason we always talk about German engineering and why I have a doberman and weimaraner, along with alot of Claas equipment lol.

Beautiful dogs mack.  I have never heard of them before but looks like they're a real treat if raised right.

Oh man, they are awsome dogs, for real.

 

The best feature, they are a bit savage, they were domestic dogs, but 300 years ago they did escape to the forest, so 100 years ago a dog trainner could rescue a bunch of them and put them into cages, so he started to pick the less dangerous. 

 

The second best feature, they really think you are part of their family, not they are part of your family. So they will fight to end for your life, also they demands a lot of respect from us.

 

The third feature, they are very kindy and carefull with kids.]

 

I have no regrets, Im on 4th generation, after 3 generatiosn of doberman. I miss my dob, they are very smart but they need a lot of medicine when they are old, and very special food to live better. Cimarron are more robust and less stuborn.

The Spitfire was just as difficult to control while on ground as the 109.

It like the 109 and the Grumman Wildcat had narrow landing gears.

 

The Hurricane was easier to land and control on the ground than either the Spitfire, 109 or Wildcat.

DICTA BOELCKE for WoWP
    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

Putting carburetors on the Merlin was not a design oversight.  Rolls Royce engineers had looked at fuel injection early on and discarded it as an option because they felt it would inhibit future development of the engine.  It's explained here:
