Great video, very interesting!  Sorry it ended that way, but the up side is that these videos will continue!  S!

Great video Barton!


I'm sorry that it ended that way.  But take comfort by the fact that you're in good company.  It's a very historical way to go.

Honestly, your streaks have been amazing to watch.


And I think I speak for everyone in JG1 (and perhaps beyond) when I say that they're really inspiring.  They're also really educational (from a tactics and coordination perspective).  Watching you pick targets and set up shots and monitor the escape window is great stuff!


Also, congrats to J99* von Bu for some great tail-gunner work.

Excellent vid as always.  Being our squadron's expert on getting shot down, and oiling my own engine LOL, personally when the oil is that bad, after I'm sure I'm relatively out of danger, I shut the engine down to clear the oil so I can see when making a landing.

I let my flight leader down. After I oiled my engine and RTB I never saw him again. Its all my fault. ;)  


Great video. If you ever need me to soften ground targets again let me know.


I also liked your video on defensive maneuvers.  I have a great analogy for lag, pure and lead pursuit. That I was taught by a trainer back in my Warbirds day if ever need some inspiration on the subject.

Great video as always, bad luck on that landing. Very similar end I had too but I was flying in Roland, of course I had no strike like you. I hope HFTRE 3 will have luckier end.

'Nother great vid Barton. Hard luck having it end that way, but I have no doubt you'll get there.
