  6. Chris Glad you enjoyed that book. Interesting to discover the tremendous pressure those young men put on themselves during the war. Very interesting the abilities they both had in flying the P38. Unreal. Great job so far on your p38 kit. Looking forward to your conversion. Jon
  7. History of war website The 81st Fighter Group was one of the units allocated to support Operation Torch, the Allied invasion of North Africa. Its group echelon landed on 8 November 1942, but the aircraft and pilots didn't begin to arrive until the end of the year, and the group didn't enter service until January 1943.

This was officially called the radio call number, but was almost universally known as the tail number. Since military aircraft were at that time not expected to last more than ten years, the first digit of the fiscal year number was omitted in the ta

  11. Both the Thunderbirds and Blue Angels will be standing down until investigations into both "mishaps" are investigated. Both teams also have to bring in replacement pilots and get them up to speed. Usually a former teammate.
