    Apologies if this is already available on the site, but I'm still finding my around it.

    Does anyone know whether RAF/Air Ministry aircraft evaluation reports for American planes are available. For example, the P-38 was rejected by the RAF. Was the evaluation written up as a report and is it in the public domain? And the same for the Buffalo etc.

    Cheers

    Hi amrit, Here is a web sight that does have a some reports on different aircraft summited by the Australian. Just search under an aircraft under the guest search area. Doesnt contain every aircraft but I do know there are some here.
    National Archives of Australia - The Collection - RecordSearch

    Another web site that has some data from the RAF on the P-40
    Perils P40 Archive Data

    P-47 thunder bolt

    I beleive that are more around but this should get you started.
