Günther Rall (10

241 were against Soviet fighters. He flew a total of 621 combat missions, was
shot down eight times and was wounded three times. He fought 1940 in the
Battle of France, the Battle of Britain, 1941 in the Balkan Campaign and over

commander of Jagdgeschwader 300 when the war ended. He claimed all of his
victories in the Messerschmitt Bf 109.
In 1956 he again
became a pilot in the West German Air Force, and from the 1960s he held increasingly

——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
