    Imagine being a P-40 pilot over the Med and comming accross a flight of those juicey babes!


    For example, on 22 April 1943 near Cape Bon, several squadrons of Spitfires and P-40 Kittyhawks attacked a unit of 14 petrol-carrying Me 323s and their fighter escorts. All 14 were shot down with the loss of about 120 crew and 700 drums of fuel.

    And full of petrol?! Oh man. What a spectacular sight that must have been. You would think that the Luftwaffe would have sent up quite the escort for those pigs. But then again, with limited fighter availability...
