    Wanted! I'm looking for aircraft manuals in .pdf, esp. German and British WWII planes.

    Apart from that does anybody have any idea where can I find combat reports of any air units?

    Hey chaps, do you have any advanced info on Piaggio P108? I/ve recently seen a drawing of this marvel of Italian engineering and I wonder what were its characteristics.

    I am also searching for some biographies of pilots of IJN Jinrai squadron, mainly escort pilots flyint zeros type 53.

    Ah, one more thing, in the beginning I thought it was a joke, but decided to get some more info about that. I've recently read a book by Raymond Lamont Brown - "Kamikaze - Japan's suicide samurai". There is a note about operation "Fugo" which included bombing the Western Coast of the USA using the baloons :shock: (made from paper - it's not my idea, I'm just referring to the book). Anybody got some more detailed info? :rolleyes:
