Great Pics Andrew, but you are like way too tall to be Udet!

Sorry we did not have long to talk at Osh this year, but I had been waiting a year to mess with Jack like that! The Pitcarin looked great flying that night, you guys really should have gotten first place. Keep in touch, and I will buy you lunch next time you cycle through Chicago.

Yes, I think Udet was about 5' 6", I'm north of 6' 2"

Thanks again for the help, and see you at one airport or another in the future--

I'm sure many have seen this already, but it's a great clip of Udet in action just after WWI:
