Manfred was a midget

That's why he became an ace...

since he was a midget the planes needed less power to climb !!

what exactly do you mean by midget ?

and since when does size matter if it is coming to somebody´s talent or do you thing that all his opponend were giants and thats wy they could not clime as fast because they needed more power

 

come to think of it did Erich "Bubi" Hartmann not kill some p51 with more power then his me109 but maybe the pilot was a giant again

Well you had to be small to fit in the older planes, but he looks about the same height as that other guy. And I've seen plenty of dogs that are taller than most average sized me on their hind legs

Danish hounds are very large dogs, its hard to say exactly how big his was, but MvR is at least Average height {5'3-5'9} judging by the size of the Dr.1 in that picture. His Skill and The Dr.1s lift is more likely to have aided his legend.

 

Just My Opinion.

I have a dude in the hood who walks his Dane every day around our block.

If that dog didn't produce an occasional "Wrufff!!" I would have thought it

was a calf or a pony. Those critters are HUUUUUGE!

As for Manfred and that theory; thank god that's a heap of ...!

Pretty much the same thing for me, except the dog is an enormous sheepdog... thing. Seriously, it's the size of a short-legged sheep.

The original post didn't strike me as being a criticism to Manfred or his achievements, nor did it seem like he (original poster) was insulting Manfred out of spite. Looks to me like he was trying to make a funny thread, but ppl seem to take things to seriously. Just my impression....

I was looking for news about KTOS and found an interesting conversation about Manfred size and his advantages:

 

"light weight could impart that additional bit of advantage in performance when piloting these low-horsepowered aircraft."
