Deutsche Luftwaffe Focke Wulf 190 D-9 "Dora" Major Gerhard Barkhorn

Major Gerhard Barkhorn cannot quite make friends on his first flights with the Focke Wulf 190 D-9, although it is a praised aircraft by all other pilots and fighter pilots. He said that it would have taken about 50 flight hours to master and achieve safe flying.
