'Major Bigglesworth,' said von Stalhein coldly, 'there are times when I seriously wonder if you were created by the devil just to annoy me.'

Very odd. I have always wondered what state these aircraft left the factory for delivery. Fully camoflaged? Unmarked with id? Gun less?
Did he spot it as that?

And apparently the Luftwaffe pilot must have been able to lip read when she said: "shoo, shoo", go away, or words to that effect. Priceless! :lol:

Unless it was the chaps with a captured aircraft having a laugh. Not something I would ever consider doing...
