    They don't make men like that anymore.

    A true hero.

    Yes! Capt. Eric Brown,what a man,what an experience. I have the book (Doubleday &Co., ISBN 0-385-13521-1) detailing his flights of 17 German aircraft including the greats such as the FW190(A& D),ME262,BF109 and ME163.
    Obtaining a copy of this 1978 publication is certainly worth the effort for anyone interested in what it was like to fly them......"Wings of the Luftwaffe"

    He flew the JETS? (I am assuming the ME planes were jets).

    Wow.

    He flew a great many planes. Here is a list (It's Wikipedia, so I don't know how accurate it may be) List of aircraft flown by Eric "Winkle" Brown - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you have a spare 43 minutes, here is a rather fascinating interview with Captain Eric done on BBC. BBC Radio 4 - Desert Island Discs, Captain Eric 'Winkle' Brown

    His lecture at Cambridge will cost you more time.
