Nearly impossible because it was very advanced for its time, and faster than
any other manned aircraft. It wasn't heavily armed and had a short range,
but it could outrun anything. But quality metals had become unavailable and
fuel was a problem. A few years earlier and who knows?

It's waaay off topic though, and I'd rather meet some people on this list
than him anyway.

So there. Take that ;-)
