Ace of the Black Cross

"Fate has given each of us the choice to become either a merchant or a soldier, to enjoy life or to forego happiness in favour of the idea that the little vessel of our existence carries out into the eternal stream of history."

Ernst Udet, Ace of the Black Cross (1938)

Jaa, Udet!!

Some people who ought to have died in a cockpit, died behind a desk.

A friend of mine in building a Fokker Eindekker replica which will be a replica of Udet's aircraft.
