There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

The tunnel boats in the vid, tho not that class, I drove back in the day.

I like going fast, but those boats scare the #%&*$# outta me.

Mr B the drivers are in a capsule, strapped in and wear an air mask. Boat racing is one of the safest forms of motorsports.


This is last year at Valleyfield. You can fast forward to miss the non racing parts.




The small boats will do ~100mph and the GP class ~160mph.

The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
