Former Luftwaffe pilot Jorg Czypionka enchanted the audience as he spoke of his days as a fighter pilot flying the BF-109.
Czypionka, who was a very successful combat pilot, survived a harrowing mission when his airplane was shot down and he was forced to parachute at night onto the roof of a factory.
He was also an early pilot of the Messerschmidt Me-262, the first operational fighter jet.
Czypionka flew his first combat mission in the Me-262 after about 45 minutes of ground training and a short introductory flight.
