    I was refered to this site through a friend, who is also doing a paper on World War II air power and development, because we thought the database was up and running. Although it's not so, I thought I could find help here on the forums.

    I'm looking for a large database or list of World War II aircraft. I need the major specs on the planes (engines, weapons, materials, etc.) for the paper. It can't be a .com site though, but anything else is fine. Can anyone help me out?

    I would go find induvidual planes on different sites, but we can only use one site. It also poses the problem of not having the same information for each plane (eg - one site might have all the specs for one plane, but another site might have only the engine and speed spec of another plane.)

    Any help would be appreciated. I REALLY want to write a good paper.

    Thanks!

    Well, Thank you. I'll check it out. This should help a lot.

    However, I'd still like to see if there's a nice clean database of them out there somewhere. I've searched for a while, to no avail.

    But again, thanks.

    If Micdrow can't find it, it probably doesn't exist! ;)

    Check any book store, especially around Christmas time.
    They've ALWAYS got a "Great book of WWII planes" laying around some place.
