Hi all,

I recently read this book 'Spitfire on my Tail' by Luftwaffe 109 pilot Ulrich Steinhilper.

Ulrich describes his selection for flying training as having to grasp live electric wires for as long as possible http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Mmmmm! I doubt, this was a practice encountered, soley by Luftwaffe trainees.

Indeed. How often has anyone within the electrical trade. Been asked to hold two wires connected to a MEGGAR?

Bet, his other compatriots were laughing their socks off?

Oh and haven't you just ruined a good book by scribbling on it? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

His description of Bad Cannstatt is exactly like how I would describe Fürstenfeldbruck ( it's modern counterpart ) - exept for the shock thingy.

Well as I said, it's the modern counterpart of Bad Cannstatt.
The today's Luftwaffe evaluation center ( located in Bavaria).

Cheers Avro. We have spoke in other posts about Duxfords Rapide http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Again it is the only plane I have ever flown in.

Went for a chopper ride at Goodwood this year!

Nice again to meet a Stalwart.

I guess that, Fustenfeldbruck is a Field training course http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

All of my books, even expensive (not rare) ones, receive my pen. Avro clearly uses his books, and doesn't just pass through the pages for light reading. He is to be applauded for applying pen to page. My books are highly prized because all the "good parts" are clearly marked.

Fürsty is where evaluation phase II for all Luftwaffe flying crews takes part (medical surgeon), as well as the annual (bi-annual?) medical surgeon.



Simon, bist du jetzt bei der Lw im Fliegerischen Dienst?

For the benefit of the English speaking forum members,the above German text =

are you now with the Lw in the aeronautical service?

Many years ago, I took the Pilot/Observer/Navigator selection process at RAF Biggin Hill and the only shock involved was that I was succesful http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
