Whilst the former was high performance and high maintenance, the latter was mechanically simple, meaning easy to fix and chuck right back into circulation.
While making the film, Galland was joined by his friend. But, somewhere round here, I thought, gazing vaguely through Ambion Wood, there was the thunder of cannon, the whinnying of horses, jangle of harnesses, clash of weapons, the roars and the screams of men; and the destiny of the world took another course. As one of the first air force commanders in the world he also took the initiative to create a specialised night-fighter force: early in the war, he ordered a couple of fighter units to begin night-fighter experiments.
