WW II DOGFIGHT DRAMA

IN A SPE­CIAL TWO-IS­SUE PACK­AGE

Flight Journal - - 10 AVIATION MYTHS OF WORLD WAR II -

Ev­ery war has a be­gin­ning and an end. So there is al­ways a first dogfight and a last one. There are tens of thou­sands in be­tween, but Flight Jour­nal’s spe­cial is­sues WW II’s First Dog­fights and WW II’s Last Dog­fights tell the tales of the very first and very last times leg­endary icon fighters and their pi­lots did bat­tle. The names of the air­craft and pi­lots are quite of­ten widely known, but their sem­i­nal ex­ploits are not. What was the first of­fi­cial aerial vic­tory of WW II? What air­plane/air force/pi­lot scored the last vic­tory in the most de­struc­tive war mankind has ever known? The an­swers are in these spe­cial is­sues, as told by those who were there, and are ac­com­pa­nied by Flight Jour­nal ’s trade­mark out­stand­ing photography.
