    This amounts to one of those endless progression / regression things, you know, chicken or the egg. To prevent us from spiraling into the abyss of some Black/Hole, I will except , that Wikipedia is a reliable authority on terms, but what about the "so called, weather balloons"? :D

    No, it's not him. :confused: He has apparently handed off the baton, to somebody only slightly more articulate than him. Yacraps would think a P-51 was some kind of urinal. I have a hard time believing Yacraps is even a real person. I think it's just some "giddy" persona that somebody thought up. :cool: Little bit of a hound too. Probably TD. :)

    No, the mosquito was DeHaviland, the lightning was Lockheed. The mosquito was not twin boom. I don't think there was any connection. :cool:

    Although something of a WW II enthusiast I claim no expertise at all when it comes to the aircraft of the era. Despite that disclaimer, though, I did see a TV program about the Mosquito some years back and if memory serves it was designed more for raids on German targets in Norway: get in, sting, and get out. The idea was to outrun anything that came after it rather than get into a dogfight.

    I think the P-38 was originally designed as a bomber interceptor, which meant it had to be fast, have a long range, be capable of operating at high altitudes, and pack a punch. The twin boom design allowed for two souped up engines with extra fuel. Removing the engine from the nose left that free to house the armament, a 37mm cannon and four machine guns, and gave the pilot a direct line of sight for aiming. The Germans did call it the "Fork-tailed Devil".

    The Brits were interested in the plane, and Lockheed-Martin sent them some prototypes, but without the power-enhancing technology because it was classified. That made the planes too slow and the Brits lost interest.

    My father was shot down over France before I was born, but P-38s were mostly used in the Pacific arena, where the Japanese gave it the label "Two planes, one pilot". It was a P-38 that shot down Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, though I understand that was pretty much a stroke of luck. No one knew Yamamoto was on board and the pilot, in an interview I heard, said he wasn't really shooting at the plane, merely clearing his guns.

    Not to my knowledge. My foster parents adopted me when I was five weeks old. Now that you mention it I don't remember them ever explicitly telling me he was killed, but that is what I have always believed.
