A ferocious, psychopathic predator!



A furball is also a dogfight involving a large number of aircraft, in a (relatively) small area.

Also something cats (and some dogs) tend to throw up from time to time...

The first furball:

The first instance of plane on plane combat and the first instance of one plane intercepting another during an aerial conflict occurred during the Mexican Revolution in November 30, 1913 between two American soldiers of fortune fighting for opposing sides, Dean Ivan Lamb and Phil Rader. Both men had orders to kill, but neither pilot wanted to harm the other, so they exchanged multiple volleys of pistol fire, intentionally missing before exhausting their supply of ammunition.

Thanks for clarifying that. I too had no idea that it referred to a big fluffy feline, of great power, and aerobatic skill and intensity.
