    During World War II, men and machines of the Royal Air Force of New Zealand fought with bravery and honor the Axis forces. The following link provides, through a compilation of images, a tribute to this important and valuable Air Force. I hope you enjoy and I count on your visit.

    When we speak of WW2, a fascinating subject for me, are the captured aircraft. I share with you the link below, which features an interesting collection of photographs about them. Many of them are new to me and I had never seen with these marks. I hope you enjoy.

    Yes we are and I am keeping a special eye on you!


    Excellent page BTW... will likely take me some time to go through all those lovely photos...

    Can I just ask, is one of the most important Kiwis of WWII included?

    I am referring to Air Chief Marshal Sir Keith Park GCB, KBE, MC & Bar, DFC.

    The Second World War saw the first steps of the helicopter as a weapon of war. The following link provides a report on this topic and a lot of photos of different models operated by the countries involved in the conflict. Hope you enjoy and I count on your visit!

    Technically Autogyros predated the helicopter by a couple of decades...

    No doubt the Second World War definitely marked the use of aircraft as weapons of war. The link below provides a collection of images, many of them colorful and rare, taken during the conflict, at different times and in different operating theaters and showing details often dramatic, of the aviation during WW2. I hope you enjoy.

    Mosquitoes and Cookies

    Post  pampa14 on Sun Aug 09, 2015 2:54 pm


    Hi everyone.

    The need has promoted an unlikely combination during WW2, a small plane and a heavyweight bomb. We are talking of dH Mosquito and blockbuster bombs used by the Royal Air Force. The link below provides an interesting collection of photos, some of which I had never seen before, this unusual combination. It is worth visiting and I hope you enjoy.

    I share with you some photos, including a rare photo with markings of the Royal Air Force, of the experimental airplane Armstrong Whitworth AW-52. If the plane had entered service during World War II would have helped to anticipate the end of the conflict? Visit the link below, see the photos and answer on this question.

    What could it have done to shorten the war?

    Even if it worked as advertised without problems it was boots on the ground in Germany than ended the war... bombing German women and children and old men in their homes a bit more was not the answer.

    A curious weapon

    An interesting report with some curious photographs showing a Spitfire of the RAF carrying beer kegs under the wings. I've never seen this. Can anyone tell what the purpose of it ? To see these curious and unbelievable photos, visit the link below:

    So that's where the Syrian barrel bomb idea came from!

    More seriously, that is a 1944 onwards set of photos. Perhaps they were testing the ability if the Spit to be a fighter bomber. Us English are well known for our 'Heath Robinson', 'lash-up' or 'what have we got to hand' approach to R&D.

    A brilliant strategy or despair?

    Post  pampa14 on Sat May 07, 2016 3:40 pm


    During WW2 many air forces tested the concept of motherships carrying combat aircraft. I share with you a spectacular collection of images showing some of the most important projects involving this kind of concept. Agreeing with the title of this post, what do you think? Strategy or Despair? The article and the photos can be viewed by visiting the link below:

    The idea has been repeatedly tested and discarded.

    Even in the jet age parasite fighters carried by large aircraft have proven to be failures and there was very little that was brilliant about them... without their engines on the parasite fighters were cold to sit in and rendered the aircraft carrying them unable to also carry a bomb load.

    The external drag of the aircraft meant low speed.

    If you are going to waste large aircraft like that it makes more sense to make them inflight refuelling tankers that can top up fighters and bombers alike.

    The Soviets experimented with such aircraft in the 1930s with Polikarpovs and four engined DB bombers... it is easy to release from a bomber but takes enormous skill to hook back up so generally they just crashed the fighter... very inefficient... in planes and pilots.


    A modern large aircraft with unmanned cheap light UAVs or UCAVs would be a different story however... as long as you could make them small and cheap and very manouverable... you could mount Igla or Verba as an air to air capability and send out a few dozen against a range of threats... you could even use them to attack enemy helos or MPA aircraft... situations where a real fighter would be overkill.

    During the World War II many women piloted fighter planes or bombers, is transporting them from the factories to the front line or in combat.

    Mosquito and Cookies: A good combination?

    Post  pampa14 on Sun Jul 24, 2016 2:00 pm


    One of the most versatile aircraft of the RAF during WW2, the D.H.98 Mosquito was used to launch the big bombs of 4,000 lb, also called cookies. I share with you, the article below that shows some pictures of this unusual combination. According to the title, what is your opinion on using these bombs by Mosquito? Visit the link below, see the photo collection and at the end, give your contribution by answering the poll or a comment about it.
