yeh i have one.....
My great grandpa was in da Battle Of Britain during WW2 fighting for the allies side in a Hawker Hurricane MK1 (got more kills then spitfires by long way; much better fighter plane) he was one kill away from being an Ace pilot then he got shot down by a Bf109 (you get em in battlefield) and bullet was jammed in the canopy release so couldnt slide canopy to bail out. As a result he shot straight into a field and died.
We still go to see the memorial every 2 years or so. Btw i am british just moved to New Zealand
....you can still see the crater where it went in.
My grandfather was a gunner for troop transports fighting for the Allies in the Pacific theater during WWII. Although most of the time he had no clue if he actually killed anyone cause he was providing cover fire he said that things would get pretty hairy in those small boats.
hey, anyone got a german lufftewaffer fighter pilot that fought in the battle of britain, then i might find the dude who shot my great grandpa down. oh yeh, anyone know if their german plane was shot dpown in the battle of britain by a hawker hurricane, hey its a 1 in 600 chance ya know
