<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> After the Berlin raid, Hermann Goering, head of the Luftwaffe said: "In 1940 I could at least fly as far as Glasgow in most of my aircraft, but not now.

"It makes me furious when I see the Mosquito. I turn green and yellow with envy.

"The British, who can afford aluminium better than we can, knock together a beautiful wooden aircraft that every piano factory over there is building, and they give it a speed which they have now increased yet again. "
