1/72 Me 163B Komet & reading 'Rocket Fighter'

GasPatch 1/48 Komet

I happened recently to re-read some of the material on Hanna Reitsch's flights in the Me 163 B. On YouTube I then revisited her famous description of 'riding on a canon-ball' in an interview and clip that related her 5th flight in the [...]
