Walter Horten began his military career with III./JG 134 and in 1936 joined I./JG 26 as Geschwader Technical Officer. Walter Horten is probably best remembered for the Horten HO229 that he and his brother Reimer developed. Walter Horten often flew as wing man for Major Adolf Galland, Gruppenkommandeur of III./JG26. It wasn't until August 1940 that Horten scored his first victory. Between August 28 and September 30 1940 Walter Horten scored his seven victories of WWII. At this time all Technical Officers were grounded and Horten became Hauptmann and Commander of III./JG 26.

Messerschmitt Bf 109E

Designed to meet a Luftwaffe need for a single-seat fighter/interceptor, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 was first flown on May 28th, 1935. Its all-metal construction, closed canopy and retractable gear made the Bf 109 one of the first true modern fighters of WWII. This versatile aircraft served in many roles and was the most produced aircraft of the war and the backbone of the Luftwaffe, and was flown by Germany's top three aces, who claimed a total of 928 victories between them. Armed with two cannons and two machine guns, the Bf 109's design underwent constant revisions, which allowed it to remain competitive until the end of the war.
