The Luftwaffe used many different aircraft during World War II, but none were more prominent than the Messerschmitt ME-109 (later upgraded to the BF-109). It served on all fronts through the war and was an excellent fighter. It was fast, highly maneuverable, and was more heavily armed than its adversaries. The BF-109G-6 version had a pressurized cockpit and a supercharger which allowed it to function at high altitudes.

Gunther Rall, joined the Luftwaffe in 1938 and began his career as a combat fighter pilot over the skies of France. Assigned to Jagdgeschwader 52 (JG.52) in 1939, he was commanding the 8th Staffel (Squadron) over the English Channel during the Battle of Britain. In 1941, he and the rest of JG.52 were reassigned to Constanza Romania to fly against the Russians as Operation Barbarossa was launched.

Gunther Rall was shot down 8 times during his 621 combat missions, and finished the war with a total of 275 confirmed victories, the third highest scoring fighter pilot in the history of warfare. Rall passed away at his home in Germany on October 4, 2009 at the age of 91 after suffering a heart attack two days earlier.
