The throttles could only move very, very slowly,
by Adolf Galland

even being very careful.
- Adolf Galland

It's unbelievable what one squadron of twelve aircraft did to tip the balance.

I would like to mention that I have flown the 262 first in May '43.

even in my position.
This aircraft didn't have any priority in design or production.

- Adolf Galland

If we would have had the 262 at our disposal -
even with all the delays -
if we could have had in '44,
ah, let's say three hundred operational,
that day we could have stopped the American daytime bombing offensive,
that's for sure.
- Adolf Galland

I made a written report which is still today in existence.
I have a photocopy of it, and I am saying that in production

Our only path to happiness lies in being open
to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.

In this world-view, money that is spent
or given away returns multiplied.
