Hello! I am Prof. Colin D. Heaton, a writer and historian. You can locate many of my interviews online at www.historynet.com, where I intervewed some of the greatest pilots and soldiers in history. I was also a guest historian on the History Channel series Dogfights Season 2 'Secret Weapons' with Me-163 Komet Pilot Rolf Glogner in 2008.
The photo I posted here was taken in 2001 at the Fighters Reunion in Germany. This is me on the right with Lt. Gen. Gunther Rall, 275 kills and recipient of the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords.
See also my book 'Night Fighters: The Luftwaffe and RAF Air Combat over Europe, 1939-1945' (Annapolis: Naval Institute Press, 2008), where I have interviews with German, British and American aviators.
I will have a new aviation book out sometime next year.
I appreciate the invitation, and I look forward to flying with you all.
