    Ok, this is your chance to design your own air force, for use in WWII............

    Rules:

    1) Your air force must consist of no more than 9 aircraft
    2) You must have atleast one trainer and one transport
    3) Any aircraft chosen must have seen service with an Air force during WWII

    naming your air force is optional...........

    have fun.........
