What is a Dog Fight, or dogfight?

A dogfight, or dog fight, is a form of aerial combat between fighter aircraft. It is in particular a combat of maneuver at short range, where each side is aware of the other's presence. Dogfight first appeared during World War I, shortly after the invention of the airplane. Until at least 1992, it was a component in every major war, despite beliefs after World War II that increasingly greater speeds and longer range weapons would make dogfight obsolete. Modern terminology for air-to-air combat is air combat maneuvering, which refers to tactical situations requiring the use of individual basic fighter maneuvers to attack or evade one or more opponents. This differs from aerial warfare, which deals with the strategy involved in planning and executing various missions

Etymology of Dog Fight

The term dogfight has been used for centuries to describe a melee, whic is a fierce battle between two or more opponents. The term gained popularity during World War II, although its origin in air combat can be traced to the latter years of World War I. The first written reference to the modern day usage of the word dog fight comes from Fly Papers in 1919, "The battle develops into a dog fight, small groups of machines engaging each other in a fight to the death." The term fighter ace applies to any pilot who eliminates five opponent craft in the air, although not necessarily in a dogfight.

The Dogfight over Europe

Dogfight was very prominent in the skies over Europe. The air force in France, while a major force during World War I, was inadequate and poorly organized, and quickly fell to the German onslaught. As the first battles between the Germans and the British began, the power of the German's anti aircraft artillery became readily apparent, with 88 millimeter shells capable of firing 40,000 feet in the air. The German Bf 109 and the British Spitfire were some of the most common dogfight airplanes used in the European theater.
