  1. I checked this in order to honor not only Kammhuber and his formidable carreer, but also all the other german nightfighers in the Luftwaffe. By the way; Kammhuber with is under the war gruesom ruined face. also visited the swedish royal airforce. This rare picture from Luftwaffe airforce base Venlo shows the caracteristic short german "Fliegerstiefel" bots with breeches.günter.
