    Cool. That first image is from my Dad's cousins plane - He was tail gunner on Dottie Jane when they took that 88 hit. He took some shrapnel wounds.

    He died about a year ago.

    Details at 447th Bomb Group

    Here is the underside...

    This is my all-time favorite aircraft image of ww2 (and my former avatar).

    Thanks to Dan Johnson (his image).

    That last B-17 must be in France - it looks like there is an early 2CV on the far right... ???

    certainly moreso than they've given credit for, they're often said to be weaker than the american bombers but that's mostly the B-17, just what is tougher than a B-17 :lol:

    if you loose an engine in a P-47 you find you'll run out of options very, very quickly as you sink like a 15,000lb stone ;)

    I was trying to find the Power off/clean feathered glide ratio of the 47 - didn't find anything reliable. Saw some that said 1:1, but I wouldn't think that could be right, it's so damn low. At that rate you'd need 6,000ft to glide 1nm :shock:

    Even my bulky TC-12B glides at 12:1 clean w/ both props feathered.
