    Guys, I thought up a little project but I need help.

    I could extend my little spider to crawl through a more extended part of the forum and collect as much data as possible. Then get all ww2 aircraft names and make a nice cloud of all aircraft we talk about. Would be interesting I think? We could see which aircraft are mentioned the most.

    Now I would need a list of as much ww2 aircraft possible, including their nicknames. I thought people could help me with that. Maybe I should make a request in the aviation forum where people could notice?
