Air Combat show on HD theater P51 vs me109


Just saw this tonight. Pretty good show.

PROTECTING THE HEAVIES: P-51 MUSTANG vs. Me109
During the bombing raids of World War II, German pilots were determined to take down the bombers that were destroying major cities across their homeland. American escort fighter pilots were just as resolved to protect the vulnerable bombers and their crews. On May 27, 1944, United States pilot Clarence “Bud” Anderson flew his P-51 Mustang against a group of Messerschmitt Me109s in one of the war’s most gut-wrenching dogfights.

Both shows are decent visually, but extremely one sided. There's nothing wrong with that per say since its for an American viewing audience, although a lot of what is implied is not accurate.
The "Dogfights" show never once showed a german plane downing an American fighter, but of course showed numerous "kills" by American pilots. They did, however, show a Japanese zero shooting down a P-51 and of course a few Wildcats. A lot of the "shows" are told by using recounts of various Allied pilots, but not so much anything from an Axis pilot.
Im not being pro-german either. Just illustrating the lack of reality some of these shows purposefully "forget" to include.

I agree 100 %.
This is why I do not watch " Made in America " Dodfight shows, war movies etc. A little propaganda perhaps ?

Although true, but usually never accurate. And therefore most dont learn anything.

You never hear that WW cost over 400,000 Americans lives.
So IMO, NOBODY wins a war.
