Re: Fw Rudolf Phillipp 6./JG27 vs 'Bud' Anderson 27 May 1944

My impression of the first engagement on the gun camera film: the pilot was new or not very good--straight and level until the end.

My impression of the second engagement on the gun camera film: the pilot was very good, but greatly hampered by the poor rearward visibility of the Me 109. At the very, very end, he inadvertently pulled the aircraft into the line of fire (to see over his right shoulder) and it literally got him killed.

Also, Bud Anderson was very good: short bursts, longish range, very patient.
