The Lyrics

This dedicated to the best pilot of WW2- Hans Rudel who accomplished in a Stuka: 2,530 sorties, 11 air to air kills (Fw-190) plus 3 Russian (Ju-87 Stuka), 125+ aircraft killed on the ground, 519 tanks killed, 1,000+ vehicles killed, 150+ artillery killed, 70 landing craft destroyed, 1 Battleship destroyed, 1 Destroyer destroyed, 1 Cruiser destroyed, 4 armored trains destroyed, Various bunkers, bridges, rail lines, communication centers knocked out, 1,100 tons bombs dropped, 1,000,000 rds MG ammo expended, 150,000 20mm rds expended, 5,000 37mm rds expended, shot down 32 times, performed 6 rescues, lost right leg below knee, kept fighting, killed 23 more tanks, won Germany's greatest award: Knights Cross to the Iron Cross with Golden Oakleaves, Swords, & Diamonds, and was the most highly decorated and greatest war pilot of WW2!!! NO ONE WILL EVER BEAT HIM and he accomplished these feats mostly in the Ju-87D and G model Stukas. Even the ace of aces Maj Erich Hartmann with 352 kills did NOT receive the award Rudel did, he was one class below it and he was an Experten!!!
In the air again
Just can't wait to get in the air again
The war I wage is greater than the Experten
And I cant wait to get in the air again

In the air again
Killing Russian tanks with BKs again
Planes, ships, artillery have all met their end
And I can't wait to get in the air again

In the air again
Diving in my Stuka, SC bombs away
With such precision
Ju-87G-2 rules the day
As my guns blaze, in the air again

Just cant wait to get in the air again
The war I wage is greater than the Experten
And I cant wait to get in the air again
Ace= 5 kills, Experten=10+ kills. The BKs in the lyrics are formidible BK 3.7s (37mm gun pods carrying 12-24 rds each depending on type mounted). The Stuka remained the greatest precision dive bomber of WW2 with an auto-release and recovery mechanism. The air sirens were perfect psychological weapons causing the French and British AA gunners to freeze up much of the time and terrorizing civilian traffic and fleeing Allied convoys on the roads in the West and in Russia. Rudel disobeyed Hitler and flew again even after he lost part of one leg! A dedicated Nazi, Rudel remained unrepentent and was proud of his achievements.

My apologies to anyone that thinks this is glorification of Nazism. It's not. It is historically accurate military aviation and anyone that studies WW2 air combat KNOWS the Rudel story well and that of Hartmann who was and still is the Ace-of-Aces. But Hartmann flew the Bf 109 and Rudel the Stuka. One was air to air and the other ground attack- both w/o mercy. Hartmann's tactic was to stay on the enemy SIX and fire away while Rudel was driven by Nazi superiority beliefs and glorification of war- total destruction. He is the male equivalent IMO of famed Nazi female test pilot Hanna Reitsch who many argue was the world's best test pikot in history b/c she not only tested radical new aviation technologies but pioneered their development. She also piloted a V-1 missile internally and made the flight to Berlin in a Fieseler Strorch under heavy fire landing near the Brandenberg Gate- the only one able to get Hitler out of Berlin by April 30, 1945. Baur, Hitler's personal pilot, would have had a much tougher time getting the Fuhrer out b/c of his a/c choices and timeframe. The large Ju-52, Ju-290, and Bv-222 were sitting targets. Hanna could fly anything with precision and helicopters as well! Anyway, don't get too much into the war or politics, just remember Rudel's scorecard at the end...
