The Canadian Lanc 🇬🇧 🇨🇦- The Avro Lancaster is a British four-engined Second World War heavy bomber. It was designed and manufactured by Avro as a contemporary of the Handley Page Halifax, both bombers having been developed to the same specification, as well as the Short Stirling, all three aircraft being four-engined heavy bombers adopted by the Royal Air Force (RAF) during the same wartime era.#Repost @canadianwarplaneheritagemuseum ・・・ Lancaster VR-A will be flying for its second flight of the day soon. kKeep your eyes to the skies.

The Germans were masters of invention - Check this out - Mistel (German for mistletoe), was the larger, unmanned component of a composite aircraft configuration developed in Germany during the later stages of World War II. The composite comprised a small piloted control aircraft mounted above a large explosives-carrying drone, the Mistel, and as a whole was referred to as the Huckepack (Piggyback), also known as the Beethoven-Gerät (Beethoven Device) and Vati und Sohn (Daddy and Son). The most successful of these used a modified Junkers Ju 88 bomber as the Mistel, with the entire nose-located crew compartment replaced by a specially designed nose filled with a large load of explosives, formed into a shaped charge. The upper component was a fighter aircraft, joined to the Mistel by struts. The combination would be flown to its target by a pilot in the fighter; then the unmanned bomber was released to hit its target and explode, leaving the fighter free to return to base. The first such composite aircraft flew in July 1943 and was promising enough to begin a programme by Luftwaffe test unit KG 200, code-named Beethoven, eventually entering operational service. #Repost @aviation_geeks_united ・・・ Mistel Bombers Explained
P51 and Warthog ... First thing I googled was the top speed of both aircraft... Remarkably both around the 430 mph mark... Although you don’t want to be on the receiving end of the P51s .50s you most definitely don’t wanna be on the wrong end of an A10 ... I have seen the Warthog fire live many times ..... Fierce weapon! - - - - - - - - - - - The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a single-seat, twin turbofan engine, straight wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic for the United States Air Force (USAF). Commonly referred to by the nicknames Warthog or Hog, its official name comes from the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, a World War II fighter-bomber effective at attacking ground targets. The A-10 was designed for close air support (CAS) of friendly ground troops, attacking armored vehicles and tanks, and providing quick-action support against enemy ground forces. #Repost @pilotstuff ・・・ I love the fact that so many planes are associated with animals. It makes them easier to identify!! By @goalaircraft
