A Spitfire Pilot

A WW2 Spitfire pilot was speaking in a church, reminiscing about his war experiences.

"In 1942," he says, "the situation was really tough. The Germans had a very strong air force. I remember one day I was protecting the bombers and suddenly out of the clouds, these fokkers appeared."

There are 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 pastor finally stands up and says, "I think I should point out that 'Fokker' was the name of a German aircraft company that made many of the planes used by the Germans during the war."

"Yes that's true," says the old pilot, "but these fokkers were flying Messerschmitts."
