Nice guy!... he might not have the the greatest tally of others but a ace none the less http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Now i wont say that he is a ordinary pilot when bearing in mind what he has done and survived, but it is a pity you never hear of the ordinary pilots that participate in the war http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif


"Oscar Boesch did not enter the war until April of l944. In an effort to help stop the allied bomber offensive, he volunteered for a new unit being formed by Major von Kornatzki to lead the effort to stop bombers at all costs even if it meant ramming them, Sturm-Staffel I. In May 1944, Sturm-Staffel I became II Staffel with 10 and 13 Staffeln added to form IV./JG 3 "Udet".

Oscar Boesch was shot down eight times, four bail outs and four crash-landings. He flew 120 combat missions and scored 18 victories including six B-17s, two B-24s, a Mustang, a Spitfire, two Yak-9s , on this last mission he rammed a Russian Yak-9 fighter. Boesch's unit suffered 350% losses. He is one of three known survivors."

Thanks for posting. It had some nice footage.

"More of these a/c were lost in take-off and landing than actual air to air combat."

So that's how the P-51 won the war. They'd takeoff long enough to get the LW to send their 109's up and then land before meeting them, forcing the LW to destroy 1/3 of it's fighers. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

"It is no surprise there are only one or two flying today."

I've often wondered how many were scrapped by the allies after the war. Yes, there's no surprise they almost went extinct.

Pirschie...

They'd take off, hear over the radio that Mustangs were inbound, and the 109 jocks would lawn dart RTB ASAP to avoid the rapage that would soon ensue.

As you can tell in Il-2, the 109 is ridiculously easy to fly.

Preposterous!!

In a way and with different numbers (out of that 1/3rd, how many was training losses?) that must have accounted for some LW combat action losses so.... good spotting! But now you have to go
count losses to Allied aircrews the same way. War of attrition, who can best replace?

Oskar just signed a picture for us along with B-24 tail gunner Forest Clark at the Foundation. The proceeds go towards the restoration:

That is Forest Clark's unit , "The Flying Eightballs, 44th BG" attacked by Sturmstaffel 1 over Brunswick in April 1944.

All the best

Some of us may know him from his sailplane aerobatics he performs at airshows all over the world. I knew nothing more of him than that, so thanks for the post!

That was the reason for sending so many fighters to Europe, to scare the LW into training more pilots, therefore more losses. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
