Excerpt provided by Syndetics

Norbert Hanning remembers an attack on a Soviet bomber: "I side-slipped down towards his tail, got in close behind him, and aimed at his two starboard engines. Pieces flew off his wing as my shells struck home. Bright flames streamed from his engines . . . an inferno erupted as his wing tanks went up."
