Hell over Hamburg

She was a sight to behold. Although I did not fly this particular B-17 Flying Fortress, I did pilot one of her many sister ships. I stood and viewed her in the ‘house of Eagles’, the US Air Force Museum (today the National Museum of the US Air Force) in Dayton, Ohio. The mere sight of this aircraft opened up my memory gates, and I was flooded with over 40 years of sounds, sights and smells rushing back to me.

Dr Wernher von Braun.

How the ‘Father of Rocket Science’ went from working for the Nazis to becoming an American space hero.

Von Braun is a man who splits opinion, to say the least. Having helped the Nazis develop the V-2 missile in World War II that was responsible for thousands of deaths, he went on to become a pivotal figure in America’s space programme — without him the manned missions to the Moon would likely not have been possible. Some are willing to forgive him for his role in the war, a role he claimed he took only because of his love for

The ‘JUG’ was solid and stable in flight and carried a tremendous load of bombs, guns and gas. It was a tight-turning, hard-hitting, flying truck. It didn’t climb worth a damn, but it could dive.

Those of us that survived fighter pilot training were sent to England. I arrived on 10 May 1944 as a replacement pilot, filling the gap left by those men who had either been shot down or rotated back home after finishing their tours.
