There are a few nice videos from the History Channel on Youtube, the first shows a nice fighter combat tactic, the 'Thatch weave'. These are not in any order, and more can be found on Youtube.

Sorry if this has been posted before.

Cool show, thanks

So when planes were performing the 'Thatch weave' did they stay in as close of proximity as is shown in the clips? It looks like at the widest part there isn't even 100yds between them?

Was it my imagination or did somebody say in another (older) thread that there was a series 2 Dogfights episode which focused on the FW190? Or are they all based on 'Allied' fighters??

If there was one, does anyone know if it's been uploaded to YouTube yet?
