  • Name that plane !

    Here is another sort of quiz.

    What is the official designator for the aircraft pictured below ?

        Not bad ! And it took a Canadian. WoooHooo!

        Actually, the design started in 1941 believe it or not.

        Just goes to show; 1940s 2-4 years from from design to production.
        2000: 10-15 years from design to production.

            During the war years, the design time was sometimes even shorter. The P-51 flew within 6 months of the British design requirement contract. Alot of bugs still needed to be worked out, but still an incredible feat!
