    We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    The wheel spats were removed on Ju 87's in some theatres of war as they were prone to picking up a lot of mud, sand, clay, grass and snow from unmetalled airstrips, this could cause major problems, especially if it froze solid during flight, which was not uncommon, and seizing the landing wheels, which could overstress the already notoriously weak undercarriage.
