Sir; the Me 163 was a dangerous airplane. Our subject aircraft demonstrably was not. But, you get a bonus clue for participation. Thanks; Ernie P.


Question: What warbird do I describe?



Clues:

1. This plane is NOT remembered for being particularly successful.



2. In fact, it was demonstrably unsuccessful.



3. But it is remembered for the bravery of the men who flew it.



4. Their bravery was memorialized by awards and decorations.



5. And at their funerals.
