The Luftwaffe’s ‘Mistel’ program was a composite aircraft aircraft program that featured single seat fighters (usually Bf-109′s or Fw-190′s) carrying unmanned, specially outfitted bombers into combat. Rather than flown with a crew and conventional ordnance, the bombers were packed with explosives, released from their fighter aircraft, and flown via remote by the fighter pilot into their targets.  Mistel aircraft saw use in combat on the eastern and western fronts, some were shot down by U.S.
