Here's a story my much missed cousin Dick Cross, who flew Jugs over Italy, told me once:

A radio announcer was interviewing a new American ace from the European theater during WWII and he asked, "What was the most difficult dog fight you were involved in?"

The pilot started to reply, "Well, I once got jumped by a flight of German fighters, and one Fokker went to the left and the other Fokker..."

The radio announcer, not wanting any misunderstandings, interrupted the pilot and told the radio audience, "Ladies and Gentlemen a Fokker is a type of German airplane."

The pilot grinned and said, "Yeah, but these Fokkers were flying Messerschmitts."
