Fokkers and Messerschmitt’s..a funny story

An old Irish World War II Spitfire pilot and flying ACE, was speaking in a

church and reminiscing about his war experiences. “In 1942,” he said, “the

situation was really tough. The Germans had a very strong air force. I

remember,” he continued, “one day I was protecting the bombers and

suddenly, out of the clouds, these Fokkers appeared.”

There were a few gasps from the parishioners, and several of the children

began to giggle. “I looked up, and realized that two of the Fokkers were

directly above me. I aimed at the first one and shot him down. By then,

though, the other Fokker was right on my tail.”

At this point, several of the elderly ladies of the church were blushing

with embarrassment, the girls were all giggling and the boys laughing

loudly.

The pastor finally stood up and said, “I think I should point out that

‘Fokker’ was the name of a German-Dutch aircraft company, who made many of

the planes used by the Germans during the war.”

“Yes, that’s true,” said the old pilot, “but these fokkers were flying

Messerschmitts.”
