Any landing you can walk away from,is a good landing. This pilot made it back to France after combat with the RAF over England. During the Battle of Britain the Bf 109's had little more than 20 minutes combat time over England when the red fuel light came on it was time to head back to France. The Luftwaffe lost many of its Bf 109's due to running out of fuel.

The Bf 109's were ordered to keep close escort of the bombers. The 109 had short range enough for only 20 minutes combat over England. On one mission JG/26 lost 12 fighters, due to low fuel, and not to enemy action.
