Reminds me a period cartoon with AH perch on the prow of a landing barge:
Do ve have commend of ze air?
Nein mein Fuhrer.
Do ve have command of ze sea?
Nein mein Fuhrer.
Then let ze invasion begin!

Time to spool up the J-33. :wink:

Hm...most likely a ridiculous question...what's the meaning of "operation sealion"? I googled it but do not see the relation with nazi's germany codename? Being swiss french speaking culturally may explain my ignorance!!! Many thanks in advance for your help!!
