    This is an awesome site. I'm learning to fly RC aircraft, and writing a book on how flying turned from an art into a science. WW2 was very important in that change, obviously.

    Any suggestions on good nose art sites? I have a C-47 model and I'd like to print off some original nose art to paste on. Most pictures are for bombers - I'm not sure how much cargo planes had nose art. Tomorrow I'm off to Smithsonian library to try to dig out some material on early checklists - I'll post a message about that on the Technical "Other" forum.

    thanks to all the amazing contributors.
