    Yes, I've wondered myself. The British and the Soviets got P47s, but you don't hear a whole lot about them. There's the oft-repeated joke (attributed to the RAF) that a pilot could evade attacking Luftwaffe by running around inside the fuselage, but that's only helpful in pointing out how big it is (duh).
