I had bought a Do-335 monographic book. The introduction was the actually built pusher Go.9 but no push-pull prototype seems to have been built before the first 335 itself.

It was the fastest prop plane at the time in WW2 but it was not a very good fighter, poor handling, not reliable. They built a few of them I think they have one intact in a the National Air and Space Museum.

This is not easy to decide. The Japanese lovers of the Zero said my beloved P-38s were fast but very bad in dogfight, the in-line engines were not reliable, and so on. If the war had stopped in 1942 (for peace rather than war, Yamamoto's goal), this would be the very lesson of History. Nothing is simple. I don't trust very much Historians, mixing propaganda of the winning side and technical "explanations".

Any landing you can walk away from, is a good one.

In fact, its the ONLY one left. And, if you see the picture, its next to the only Arado Ar 234. Funny enough, according to my research, these two aircraft were both shipped together from Germany after the end of the War, and are now together again in the NASM
