    Howdy - I just stumbled across this forum in my quest for information regarding WWII aircraft. What a surprise to find such a wealth of information in one convenient place.
    As I'm only 27, I can't rightly explain my fascination with the aircraft of WWII in a short convenient paragraph. I don't know if it's the design, the mystique, the aura of honor that surrounds the entire war, or a past life regression (if you go in for that sort of thing) but whenever I see an old warbird, watch some scratchy black and white footage, or in a rare instance, see a beautiful gunship roar over my head on the way to an airshow, I get shivers down my spine, the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, and I can almost feel tears fill my eyes.

    I can't explain it other than that, but hope you guys don't mind me lurking around.
    Sam
