A few thoughts
Sun Dec 14 20:10:59 2003

I have read everyone's comments, and with understandable emotion, your's Hawk-Eye. These fascinating bits of very important information (at least to the serious historian) need to be preserved in some way. I don't think any one person should do it, but at least those who can cite appropriate references should.

Now at this point, I would also like to add: STOP THIS INCESSANT BICKERING and create a place on-line to put all of the corrections related to the books, magazines, TV programs and so on. Complaining to those responsible, in my view, is not the answer. Just do it, before this thread disappears into some electronic limbo and the lot of us will be doomed to revisit it for eternity. Or at least more often than most of us would like.

Honestly, Gents. A book would be great (possible title: Corrections to Myths, Errors and Nonsense about the German Air Force, 1939-1945), but expensive. My possible book title could be the heading for a specialized site where everyone could add their bit and have done with it. At least this information would be preserved for posterity and in a place where it could be of some use to all. And lastly, if the aviation experts here don't do it, who will?

My two cents. (Please excuse the brief rant.)

Best regards,
