Hey Ho everybody. I stumbled (not literally!) onto this site to settle an Arguement and was so Impressed I decided to Join-in! (Was the P51 the best/fastest Fighter of WW2? No off-course Not! ....The Spitfire WAS the best 1 on 1 Dog-fighter and the Tempest and Ta 152 could whip the pants off a Mustang!... Not to mention the Corsair and the F-8-F!) I was/am not a Pilot and never more than Parachutist but I do love the beauty of flight and the machines that make it so. A favourite auther of mine, (iain M Banks) once said that a Society could be judged by the elegence of the weapons it makes. I don't subscribe 100% to that view but it's the closest I can come to why I find Pugnacious Aircraft so alluring! CHEERS to You ALL!
