The video was snipped from a Canadian documentary series called Flightpath. I have been posting every episode of this series to the alt.binaries.multimedia.aviation newsgroup for the past two months or so.

Anyway the episode dealing with the Typhoon had this little snippet of footage of the Messerschmidt foundation's Bf-109G6 FM+BB that I thought that you may wish to spend 3 minutes and 2 seconds watching.

I like the landing, and think that we should all aspire toward this. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Anyway fwiw, enjoy.

EDIT: Forgot to mention this, but plug your ears to ignore the commentary from the clip. (Except for Walter's comments.)

I believe that's a YES!

Since this plane flys in Germany I assume that is the reason there is no emblem of the Third Reich on the rudder?

An interesting vid and nice pics, many saved into my "Profiles" skinning folder for future reference.
Thanks! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Thanks for posting that Waldo! And yes beautiful landing - he just very delicately kisses the ground http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Loved the edited shots of the 'over-awed' spectators too http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Walter Eichhorn is just a brilliant pilot - for anyone who hasn't seen him fly that same Bf109 in the following vid and land after some serious sideslipping - enjoy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nj77mJlzrc) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

There is an arcane section of the internet that is unknown to most casual users (parents especially) called Newsgroups.

Newgroups really are, or were, the underbelly of the internet in the old days.

Anyway, like I mentioned I have been posting complete episodes (44 minutes each/commercial free) of this series for the last two months or so to the alt.binaries.multimedia.aviation newsgroup.

Each weekday my local broadcaster plays an episode. I use a capture card to grab it. I gut the commercials using Virtualdub (http://www.virtualdub.org/). Compress it into a Divx/mp3 file with a program called Super C (http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html), then break it up into 10 meg chunks with Winrar (http://www.rarlab.com/) and post it with some par2 files made with Quickpar (http://www.quickpar.org.uk/) to the afore mentioned newsgroup.

If you are interested in downloading them, you would need to become familiar with a few pieces of software.

You need a newsreader. (I use Agent) But you could use Free agent (http://www.forteinc.com/main/homepage.php)
or X-news (http://xnews.newsguy.com/).

You would need Winrar (to uncompress it and reassemble it into the complete file.) If your newserver is terrible you would also need Quickpar to repair the damaged rar files before Winrar got a chance to reassemble the file.

Flightpath is a very diverse aviation program, that as far as I know got/gets very little airplay outside Canada. They have done shows on Police Helicopters, Air tanker, Crop Dusting just everything. Over all it is kind of excellent. I think I must have posted 20+ episodes already.

When the series ends, I shall likely be posting something else. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think the Flightpath series is over now, so far all ive seen are re-runs, it is a great show nonetheless

Excellent.
When that dude got out of the 109 and the other guy asked him:
" So how fast will it go?"
"Well, it's restricted to five hundered and fifty kilometers per hour."

I just imagined seeing a thousand ghost-like WW2 Luftwaffe pilots surrounding him and watching and listening as he stood there with his hands in his pockets.
