I was shocked to hear during an interview with the pilot of the only flying Zero in the US, that a lot of people commented negatively on the very existence of the aircraft. I don't get blaming an object for the foibles of it's creator. The Zero, the Me-262, FW-190, Me-109, and many others are indeed beautiful aircraft, and were engineering marvels of their time. I think it's a testament to the human spirit that they now appear at airshows and in museums with their allied counterparts. I've toured German air museums, and seen USAAF and RAF aircraft proudly displayed there! I've not once heard a German aviation enthusiast suggest that Spitfires had no place there. Adolf Galland and Douglas Bader became great friends after the war, as did many of the men who fought against one another. The Me-163 video is amazing by the way, thanks William for posting it!

Re: 163's


Your fathers story is incredible and amazing. Thanks for sharing that with us.

It's unfortunate that almost all of the war veterans including my father who was from Holland are no longer with us.

Yup! Restored Right here in Canada by Bob Diemert.

If you have time, watch the video. Segment on the zero begins about 1/2 way. Oh, the challenges of getting it into the air. Watch the part when it gets to Texas and you will see what the pilot you mention was talking about.
