    I have a lady in the water. Yep a real P40-CE. I am trying to get her out this watery grave, but I need some technical specs on the plane to make sure my Math is right.

    I think I need the interior volume of the entire plane. I guess that means the Cockpit, wings, fuselage, and engine compartment volumes.

    Does anyone have any sources for these kinds of things?

    I'd love to get her out, but I need your help!

    Sorry Lordd, I dont have the info you needed. Best I can do is to point you this link. Maybe some one will. Good luck with the project. Any idea on the identity of the aircraft?

    Hi Lordd,

    >I think I need the interior volume of the entire plane. I guess that means the Cockpit, wings, fuselage, and engine compartment volumes.

    Hm, the only time I've seen information like that listed in a technical report was for a P-51. The NACA used these measurements to calculate the moments of inertia for all axes to compare it with experimental data.

    You could check the NASA technical reports server - there might be similar data for other aircraft types as well.

    (Unfortunately, the NACA usually qualified the tested types after the fashion "a typical pursuit aircraft", which makes a type-specific search a bit tiresome.)

    Good luck!
