What If? . . .

After reading about the Airbus Plane owned by Jet Blue (Flt. 292) with front landing gear failure, I wondered:
What if Mercedes made airplanes?

Would you fly on one??

Remember if the catalytic converters crack in mid flight or if the fuel pump fails. Hows about a Harmonic Balancer failure at 35,000 feet??[:0][:D]

The Mercedes designed engines were actually quite good. The Allies engines would stall if they went into too many G's. It would starve the carb dry and cause the engine to stall. The Mercedes had EFI and could keep going despite the G's or conditions. The Allies just had more/better pilots and planes.
