    Thanks for posting that, I would love to go thru a complete gun boresight proceedure on that aircraft. I taught F-16 gun boresighting so I found this chart especially interesting.

    Hi Denny,

    >Thanks for posting that, I would love to go thru a complete gun boresight proceedure on that aircraft. I taught F-16 gun boresighting so I found this chart especially interesting.

    This (somewhat longish) thread has one or two boresighting diagrams for the P-38 or P-47, and also a couple of animated GIFs I prepared to illustrate the resulting pattern at ranges of 100 - 1000 m.

    I'd imagine you might find this interesting, and perhaps the rest of the discussion as well :)

    Regards,

    Henning (HoHun)
