Hi guys i was thinking about how heating worked in the 109, i know the Germans used electrically heated flying suits but was that used in big extent or did they have some sort of xhaust pipes coming from the engines and passing thru the cockpit?.
I know i have read things about heated gloves in the K-4 but would that have been efficient when it is -80?C outside?, hope some one can cler this up for me maybee some 109 guru like Kurfurst http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Don't know about the heating, but you won't encounter -80?C until much higher than the 109 could ever fly.

Now want to ask how Mustang pilots went number 1 and two on long missions to the Reich? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Often pilots would wee on the tailwheel before a flight (for luck) calling it a QNP (quick nervous pee)

While in flight there was a tube for number one that lead to the outside (often was defective) so some took a long an empty bottle.

There is one story of a PR Spitfire pilot who routinely peed in his pants. At altitude it would evaporate before he reached the ground. All except for one time when there was a photo op staged for the press upon his landing. When his erk picked his parachute he got covered in the stuff.

IIRC the story is in Flying Under Fire vol 2.

As for number two, hold it or go.

I can't say for sure but IF it has a heater, I would guess that it uses the engine cooling water to heat air just like your car heater does.

I don't know about heating, I guess the flying suit had electric circuits in them, at least the boots definietely had such, and you plugged those in the cocpit. Some of the Gustavs had pressurized cocpits, this would help a bit at altitude I beleive, where you can easily encounter -40 celsius.
