    Best piece of advice regarding that situation:
    “When in doubt, duck.”
    I’ve got a hardbound copy of several issues of the “Journal of Recognition”, and even though I can recognize what all those planes are, I’d sure duck if anything unexpected started flying overhead, because by the time I figured out if it’s a Do-217 or a B-25 I might have a big bomb falling towards right where I was sitting.

    BTW, what exactly were the chances of allied troops running into an attacking Me-323? (#12)
    I mean, seriously, a squadron hack P-40 could have blown that thing out of the sky with no trouble at all by this point in the war. 😀

    I got 10 right. What do I win?

  • topgun

    Good point Pat, the odds of a G.I. seeing an Me-323 at this point in the war had to be zero.

  • PMan

    I got 11 planes ID’d.

    The inclusion of the Ju-252 and He-111Z were fairly odd also.
    Three that I was expecting to see that aren’t on the picture were the Me-262, Ar-234, and of course the dread “He-113”.
