Was just re-reading Blond Knight...i donno how it slipped my mind first time...but Degtyarka where Hartmann was transfered in 1953 and was placed in prison for high ranks of german army is only 7 miles away from my place of birth. Needless to say i know that place and been there not once when i was a kid, wondering around remains of that prison...looking for treasures.

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

yep,small world i found out from reading a web
site about franz stiglr that adolph galland use to come to b.c,and they use to go moose hunting
in northern b.c(where i grew up) he apparently loved it here.but it s kind of strange to think
about.cheers.

After it was refeuled i climbed in.With many manipulations the mechcanics started the turbines.I followed their actions with the greatest of interest.The first one started quite easily.the second caught fire.In no time the whole engine was on fire.Luckily as a fighter pilot i was used to getting quickly out of the cockpit.The fire was quickly put out.The second plane caused no trouble - Adolf Galland (first time in a ME262)
