Re: Training new Luftwaffe

Hi Stig.
Their training was in the USA on F-84s, a few in the UK on Hunters beginning July 1955; they returned to Germany in March 1956 as unit C/Os or Staff Officers ( some as instructors).
Not many British aircraft were chosen ( mostly American) but they adopted a few transport/ rescue types, Pembrokes, Herons and Sycamores.
