"A. S. Did these sights permit normal precise aiming?

N. G. In our regiment we commenced firing at ranges of 70-50 meters, when we could see the rivets. One could not miss with either sight at that range. We never fired from beyond 200 meters. It was too far."

Dave Southwood describes what is is like flying a restored 109G2

Here is another quote from the article:

"'109 with greater respect than anything else that I fly, but the challenge of trying to fly it well gives me greater satisfaction and enjoyment than probably any other aircraft.'"
