Deleted topic explanation
« on: December 24, 2022, 09:33:29 PM »
Folks
I have deleted the thread about the 1938 movie "Pour Le Merite" as the topic  quickly veered into an unpleasant focus on Nazi propaganda films.

I know the member who posted the link to the movie wanted to draw our attention to the original WW1 aircraft that featured in the film. Unfortunately it has stirred up emotions so its safer to remove the thread.

I have been in hospital for the past month and face quite a few more weeks here dealing with a major health crisis. My apologies for  not  being as attentive to forum matters as I would wish to do. I am very grateful to the Mods, Lance, Brad and Zac for keeping the forum in good shape.

While in hospital I watched the "Pour Le Merite" movie whose Nazi propaganda theme was very obvious. I fast forwarded to the scenes of the Fokker DVII and Dr.1. It  was interesting to see original WW1 aircraft in detail, rather than modern copies.

This forum celebrates those aircraft. We do not celebrate political ideologies.

Thanks for taking down the post for me, I had no idea whatsoever THAT would happen.
Sad to hear you're in the hospital for the holidays, hope all the best for you.
Thanks,

All the best also from my side. A „maior health crisis“ doesn’t sound good. I wish you a speedy recovery.
