    Actually those aircraft are american carrier based types of 1940- TBD, BT, SB2U and F2A. Don't think they were used operationally with that cammo.

    P-38 captured!

    Post  pampa14 on Sun Sep 20, 2015 2:51 pm


    I share with you some rare pictures (in color and w/b) of fighters Lockheed P-38 Lightnings captured and with German and Italian markings during World War II. Does anyone know how many were captured and how they came to Europe once they have been used in the Pacific? To view the photos visit the link below:

    Mitchell's Nose Arts

    During World War II, the practice of customizing aircraft with drawings and pin ups reached the maximum creativity. I share with you some of the most curious nose arts created by the crews of B-25 Mitchell bombers. To see them, visit the link below:

    I share with you a collection of photos, some of them extremely rare, showing Allied bombers captured by Germans, Italians and Japanese. One question, does anyone know if during the Second World War a B-29 bomber was captured and tested? To see the photos, visit the link below:

    A Super Lightning?

    Post  pampa14 on Sun Nov 29, 2015 1:45 pm


    During World War II, the Lockheed developed a long-range version of its famous fighter P-38 Lightning, however, due to technical problems the project was canceled. The link below provides a collection of interesting photos of the plane and a question: If the plane had entered service, have reached the success of the P-38? What do you think? Visit the link, see the photos and answer this question through a poll at the end of the post.

    A day to be remembered or forgotten?

    Post  pampa14 on Sun Dec 13, 2015 1:46 pm


    Last Monday completed 74 years the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, one of the most painful days of American History. I share with you here a link that brings a collection of dramatic photos, many of them rare, showing the devastation caused by the attack on the airfields of the island. Visit the link below and answer the title question.

    Thank you. It should be remembered, just as Soviet/Russian history of WW2 should be remembered! You were our greatest ally and paid the highest price fighting Nazi Germany. Several of my Uncles fought in the Pacific, and one in France. I've seen a photo of him and wounded comrades. They look like they had been through hell, which they had. That look in the eyes. My older first cousin was killed by a Japanese sniper. He was his parents' only child.
    Salute to all brave men and women!

    American Intelligence was already aware of Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour. They shifted their naval assets from there just few days before attack and replaced it with obsolete WW1 shios and other assets.

    Funny how a stab in the back attack then could be justified by todays spin doctors as pre emptive self defence.

    Japan was an Empire and had already military bases and troops in other countries... its primary problem was a lack of raw resources like oil and rubber.

    The British and US empires also had colonies around the place to ensure their economies were not limited by the resources of their home countries though the natural resources of the US were significantly greater than the resources of the UK but when you add in the British empire they were probably quite comparable...

    The thing is that if some power had blockaded US or UK ports then a military reaction directed at the source of the "blockade" would be something most people would expect to happen... except those kept in the dark...

    One was fantastic, two would be ...?

    Post  pampa14 on Sun Feb 07, 2016 1:08 pm


    Developed shortly after World War II, the Twin Mustang was not involved in the conflict, however, as it would have been his performance against the German fighters? The P-82 had anticipated the end of the war? What do you think? The link below provides an interesting report about these questions and an extensive collection of photographs, some rare and unreleased for me. To see the full report and the photos visit the link below:
