Sven Svenson Swedish WWI Flying Ace

In the late 1960s, Johnny Carson hosted Sven Svenson on the Tonight Show. Mr. Svenson was a Swedish World War I pilot during the war.

Johnny introduced Mr. Svenson to the audience and asked what it was like to be a pilot back in the day. Sven replied. "vell Johnny, dere I vas in my Sopwith Camel when I spotted a Fokker at 3 o'clock and den anotter Fokker at the 5 o'clock position and den one more Fokker at 12 o'clock!"

Johnny quickly said, "Mr. Svenson, we need to let our audience here in the studio and at home know that a Fokker is a type of German aircraft!"

Sven replied, "yes, Johhny, that is correct! But, these Fokkers were flying Messerschmitts!"
