      All Germans were evil during the war - EVIL I tell you...

        Black pilots in the Second World War behaved in a suspiciously anachronistic way.

          The 'Red Tails' had a big advantage over the Germans due to having video-game aircraft that rarely ran out of ammunition or fuel not matter how much flying or fighting they did.

            After fighting a war on multiple fronts for four years and honing their tactics in the Spanish Civil War the Luftwaffe seemed to have forgotten everything they learned - luckily for the Red Tails.

              Flying drunk is okay - especially combat flying.

                Disrespect to superior officers was 'basically okay' in the US Airforce during the Second World War.

                    Getting shot at on an aerial combat mission causes you surprise and consternation - it's not like you should be expecting it after all.

                      Cannon fire from enemy aircraft is not as deadly as smaller calibre machine-gun fire from your planes.

                        The limiting forces of physics did not apply to dog-fights that the Red Tails were involved in.

                          Red Tails pilots' eye-sight was so good that they could identify people on the ground whilst piloting their aircraft at 200mph.

                            Even slaughtering most of a German fighter squadron on your first mission doesn't really get you any recognition.

                              Radio silence does not apply to the Red Tails - EVER!

                                  Italian women during WWII used to hopelessly fall in love with black men and it didn't matter neither could understand a single damn word of each other.

                                    All white American fighter pilots were selfish bastards and a cross on their fighters worth to them more than an entire squadron of their fellow American bomber crew.

                                      Whites turn red when they get upset, turn green when envious or sick, turn yellow when become cowardly and still got the nerve to call blacks COLOURED.

                                        You won't burn to bones when soaked in airplane fuel and crash land in a fireball if you believe in the Black Jesus.

                                          A black WWII POW could easily escape from a German POW camp and walk across all the German territory and rejoin his unit. German people naturally didn't get suspicious upon seeing a black man avoiding being seen and lurking in the shadows.

                                              Italian Mamas give their blessing to the first stranger knocking on their door to bang their daughter as long as he's black.

                                              You won't turn to pieces if several 30 mm Me-262 gun's bullets hit you. In fact those bullets aren't much different than of a 22 calibre's.

                                                Changing the fighter plane is easy and pilots won't need any kind of training or practice to qualify flying with them before going to missions. The same is true for the maintenance crew. As long as the planes arrive you're good to go.

                                                  You can perform a very complicated aerial manoeuvre just by seeing your enemy does it to kick your ass while you running away.for your life screaming. Training and practice can go f#ck themselves.
