The author of one of my favorite quotes:

...We'll face a sky full of flak, missiles and MiGs, but don't worry about it, I've got it on good authority that none of this is happening."

Robin Olds

Yeah, he was one h*ll of a character.

Few posessed his skills in leadership.

It also remineded me on great Dogfights episode I watched few days agao featuring "Operation Bolo". I think the episode is called "Hell over Hanoi" or something like that, definitely recommend it...

"Bolo" is called "Ambush" in the DF-series.

Robin's exploits in the P38 are something as well. He is supposed to be the only fighter pilot to score a victory while in "glide mode."

He punched his drop tanks off to attack a large number of 109s and forgot to move the selector switch to main.
