Blazer...This Is My Favorite WWII Airplane

Blazer, since we're on the subject of classic WWII planes, this beauty has always been my favorite. You can imagine my shock and awe when I walked into a room at the Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C., and one of these greeted me as it hung from the ceiling. There are only two of them left.

The Macchi 202 Folgore (Thunderbolt). I love the looks, and it was a very good airplane, hampered only by it's lack of armamant. I have a plastic model waiting to be built.

That is sweet. I'm a P-40B man myself. Got some good pics of an "E" on the Air and Space museum a long time ago. I was going to build an RC but just don't have the time or room where I live now. ) =

I like all of the WWII airplanes. Unbeilevible to me how many they built in such a short time.

Someday I'm going to hop in a plane and learn to fly or die trying.

Maybe start with a PA-140 or a Cessna 150
