Flying the Bf 109 throughout his service career, Luftwaffe fighter ace, GŁnther Rall, ended the war with 272 aerial victories, making him the third most successful fighter ace of all time. Serving through the battles of France and Britain, it was not until his involvement in Operation Barbarossa that his victory tally began to increase in spectacular fashion. After the war, Rall offered his services to the RAF in evaluating the Messerschmitt Me 262 jet fighter, where he became firm friends with RAF ace Robert Stanford Tuck. He was also the star of many WWII documentaries on the subject of Luftwaffe operations and air combat in general.

The absolute epitome of WWII fighter design, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 series of fighters have to be regarded as amongst the finest aircraft of all time. Serving throughout the Second World War, the Bf 109 was the most heavily produced fighter in history and was the mount of some of the most prolific fighter aces of WWII. The basic airframe was flexible enough to allow constant upgrades throughout its service career and in tandem with the Focke Wulf Fw 190, provided the backbone of Luftwaffe offensive and defensive fighter support throughout the war. Small, light and powerful, with both cannon and machine gun armament, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 always posed a significant threat for Allied pilots and in the hands of an Experten, you were in real trouble!
