German Planes in Combat - WWII

This video clip, from a German-language documentary, includes views of German combat planes in action. 

We also see historical footage recorded by the gun-camera of a BF110 - a twin-engine heavy fighter.  That plane, designed by Willy Messerschmitt, lacked agility in the air and was frequently used during night missions.  After the Battle of Britain, the BF110 became the Luftwaffe's major night fighter.
