World War 2 Aircraft - Grumman F9F Documentary

Dogfighting initially appeared during World War I, shortly after the innovation of the plane. Until at the very least 1992, it was a part in every major battle, despite beliefs after World War II that increasingly better rates and longer range weapons would certainly make dogfighting outdated.

The term gained popularity during World War II, although its origin in air fight can be mapped to the last years of World War I. The term fighter ace generally applies to any type of pilot that gets rid of five opponent craft in the air (or, in Germany during World War I, ten aircraft), although not always in a dogfight.

Contemporary fighter pilots have compared dogfighting-- with its intense maneuvering, leaving little margin for mistake-- comparable to "blade dealing with in a phone booth".

The first occasion of airplane on plane fight and the initial occasion of one airplane obstructing an additional during an aerial conflict took place during the Mexican Revolution in November 30, 1913 between two American soldiers of ton of money fighting for opposing sides Dean Ivan Lamb and Phil Rader. Both men had orders to eliminate but neither pilot intended to harm the other so they traded multiple volleys of gun fire, purposefully missing before tiring their supply of ammo.
