Simple question.

What's your favorite American aircraft from WWII?

P-51 Mustang … or F4U Corsair

And the P-38 is pretty cool

I'm partial to P-51B "razorbacks" in the OD/Neutral Grey color schemes. Also love the P-40

P-40. It just says "fighter".

P-38, P-40, F4F, F4U, P-39

Corsair. I've loved it since I was a kid. There's just something about that gull wing behind the big radial engine.

Legion 410 Aug 2018 2:41 p.m. PST

P-39, my Mom made parts for them. She was a "Rosy the Riveter" during the war …

Personal logo Texas Jack Supporting Member of TMP10 Aug 2018 2:56 p.m. PST

P-40. I think. But it could be Corsair. Or P-36.

P-38 Lightning.

P-38 or the A-26.

Ferozopore10 Aug 2018 8:15 p.m. PST

P-39 or the PBM flying boat (a neighbor was a crewman in ine)

P-47 for me, specifically in natural metal finish. Nothing says "we don't care about being seen" like all that shiny aluminium.

21eRegt11 Aug 2018 4:39 a.m. PST

F4U Corsair

Vigilant11 Aug 2018 5:35 a.m. PST

Mustang for cool looks and versatility. P-39 because it is so weird it's cool.

Jug with the bubble.

Thresher01 Supporting Member of TMP13 Aug 2018 2:33 a.m. PST

P-51D for me, at least for the fighter (P-38's a close second).

B-17G for the bomber.

Blackhorse MP25 Aug 2018 7:29 a.m. PST

P-38 or P-40…it's a toss-up.
