What happened to the US AF RF-4 Phantoms ? by Prowlus
I remembered the USAF did aquire the recon phantoms but they and their role seems to have disappeared alltogether come the 90s. Did they get phased out due to spy saterlites or do f-16s have a secondary recon role that hasn't been used yet?

Do the RAF really want the A400m? by Prowlus
Just curious really, wouldn't going from a fast tactical jet transport (c-17) to a slower prop transport be like swapping a stallion for a mule to the RAF?

Why didn't Galland customize his aircraft for his needs? by Prowlus
Looking at JV-44's craft the main commanders of this flight had aircraft with either six 30mm guns (Bär) or massive cannon (Herget) but why didn't Galland do anything to his ME-262 like the others? I'm suprised he didn't get himself a upgunned 262 like Bär did or was he the kind of pilot who didn't...

Is this scene genuine? by Prowlus
just found this portrait on the web http://www.super-mystere.net/aaw/planche/pages/44.htm it shows what looks like a me-323 being pestered by a RAF B-26 Marauder. So now to bring in question the authenticity of the painting does anyone here agree that the Marauder in the picture cannot possibly...

Did the original Dash 80 have wingflex? by Prowlus
Just watched the "Giant in the Sky" documentary about the B-52 Stratofortress and it mentionned alot about the first aircraft with "Wing Flex" technology. Did Boeing use the same technology when they designned the Dash 80 aka C-135/707 ?

ME-262 A-1a/U4 question by Prowlus
I was just reading a article showing a captured ME-262 A-1a/U4 with a 50mm cannon on its nose . Does anyone know what this variant was supposed to be used for Anti-tank or anti-bomber? The only other thing i know is that it was flown by a "Willi Herget"

Would the convair XC-99 make a profitable airliner? by Prowlus
Looking at a recent article of the convair xc-99 pusher transport I'm suprised convair didn't consider turning it into a civil airlinner during development . With the ability to carry 400 passengers, wouldn't this plane have ushured in the concept of mass-air travel decades before the 747 if it had...

George W. Bush Abortion Scandal that should have been by Psalm 110
Sun Myung Moon, the Washington Times, is the proof that Bush is a fake Christian. No Christian can accept Sun Myung Moon's declaration he is messiah and "King of Kings". In the context that Moon is NOT SHUNNED and is not taken to task for selling nuclear sub technology to North Korea, it means that...
