    Check out all the pics I just uploaded to the wallpaper gallery, there are some rare planes and ones you don't see much. They're all 1024x768. I think I may have mislabed some and there are some I couldn't identify, if you know what they are please post. Thanks

    That wasn't what I meant to do, there are some really cool pics that I wanted the forum to have and they didn't come labeled so I know I misnamed some.

    No ...Aggie, I think lanc meant that as a compliment. Either that or he's going to use you in the future as a defence for all his shameless self-promotion; "But everyone does it, remember when Aggie did it..."

    I didn't take it as self promotion either. Self promotion is when people get a login here and only plug their website while not joining any discussions here. I rarely look at the albums, so it's nice to know when there is something new.

    Some nice ones there Aggie.

    The P-51 is shooting up a either a Blohm und Voss BV 222 or BV238 Flying Boat.

    The ones you have no idea what there are: I think they are Dutch. The one in the foreground I think is made by Fokker not sure about the other one though.

    I posted a comment to the Fokker shot. I am not sure about the bomber that looks like a Mitchell (but it isn;t). The Fighters are definitely Fokker G1As

    I remembered the Blohm und Voss randomly the other day, one of those bits of information that gets lost for years then pops up when I'm taking my damn calc test. :) As for the Dutch ones, I've never seen them. Neat lookin' though, any performance figures? Thanks for the comments!

    Most likely a Bv-222, seeing as the Bv-238 never actually made it to service. I havent looked at them yet, but ill make sure to! 8)

    Oh ok sometimes you brits are hard to understand. My bad. Haha, no really though 75% of the time I can't understand you. That's Texan drawl for you I guess, we talk slow and anything that comes faster we just smile and nod politely...

    Nor would I call the Ju 88 a heavy bomber or the Swordfish a Fighter/Bomber as a matter of fact.

    You wouldn't call a Swordfish a fighter unless you were really brave!

    That would be the more accurate designation.
