The Me262 had a good start, but the P-51 had the advantage of several thousand feet more altitude and was gaining speed by diving. The wind shrieked against the P-51s wind shield as the Packard Merlin engine bellowed, whilst the airspeed indicator needle moved steadily around its dial and on up past the four hundred miles an hour mark. The Mustang controls became heavier as it shot down like a dart. As I drew close to the first 262, I pulled back on the control column to bring my guns to bear on the wing section, knowing that if I hit an engine I could partially disable or even destroy the 262 with one pass.Wings follows some of the great warbirds of World War Two into an immense air war where some famous fighter aircraft and fighter aces took part in duels to the death thousands of feet in the air. This book follows the Battle of Britain and the Air War in Europe as Spitfires, Hurricanes, Messerschmitt and Mustangs twist and turn in the skies over Europe trying to gain the upper hand, so they can chalk up another kill.
