Bingo Hoosier, the dedication to these fallen and engraved in marble in Nanton and the cerimony which i attended last year to pay honor to these individuals was both touching and emotional...please take a second and open this URL as it is unlike any other and pays homeage to the fallen in RCAF bomber command and the 379 US servicemen whom died while in RCAF bombers...http://www.lancastermuseum.ca/memorialgranite.html...oh the pulling out of the lanc and starting the inner starboard merlin 3 times during this day, while being aloud to stand but a few feet away, while the engine turned over, coughed, nearly quit, and mags switched on bringing the Merlin to life, kids covering their ears from behind the plane let one know the sounds where healthy..

go ahead hoosier you quiz

There was only one ace in the USAAF during WW2 in the P-39 Airacobra.
What was the pilot's name, and the model/type of P-39 he was flying at the time...

I will look for this answer in a short bit, but on the topic of mid-engine planes, here is an interesting experiment the British did mounting a merlin mid plane in a mustang, and made 2 protypes, am curious if anyone knows what became or how these planes performed..
Also, two aircraft of this lot were fitted with Packard-built Merlin engines mounted behind the cockpit, in the fashion of the P-39.[8] This was identified as Model NA-101 by North American and XP-78 by the USAAF, later redesignated XP-51B.


k, back to quiz, i will try and find answer....

Yes Emil. Close enough.

Lt. William Fiedler
347th FG 68/70th FS.
He was flying a P-39N at Guadalcanal.
My readings tell me he was killed when his plane was hit by another aircraft as he was awaiting take-off.

Your question.

JD Lindsay?

The two jets were Migs in Korea while he was on loan to the USAF.

I didn't think Lindsay was a one mission ace anyway. I don't really know if he got any jets, but how about Joe Audet, he's from Alberta and a one day ace.

unsure of the Fi103R...but i think a female luftwaffe pilot took a V1 for a flight as to try and correct a stability/flight problem...unsure if it was because of aielron tabs, or but i think she was able to correct the problem...damn...Galland wife??? lol...either off topic, or another might know women aviator whom preformed this task..

Or I'm out to lunch, and helping the sheep stray from the trough
