I can remember the source, but I'm sure of it.

Some aviation artist made that comment when he painted a pic of Hackl in a BF-109 intercepting a Bomber Stream; I think he was referring to Hackl's time as head honcho of JG-11 (or was it head honcho of III/JG-11); Sorry I cannot say more on the matter, but Hackl is one of my favorite Jagdwaffe 'personalities'.
