    Anyone have recommendations for a good source of detailed information on WWII aircraft? Either electronic or print media.

    I guess that's a rather broad question, so let me explain.

    Some of you may have read my post about the apparently defunct database, and I wanted to move my continued questions to a more suitable forum. I thinks that this would be the place.

    I am working on a mathematical model of aircraft performance characteristics, as an aid for examining the perennial "what if" questions. By gleaning through various web resources, I have collected data on the basic parameters for about 150 WWII era aircraft. Some information is proving hard to find. For instance, I find scant information on combat radius, or fuel load.

    I was drawn to this site by some discussions of specific aircraft, and have made good use of that information, but I need more data.

    Thanks for all the useful data you have already provided, and I hope for some more.
