I love the propaganda bit,"the new fighter has already proved vastly superior to the latest German single seater, the Me-109F" :mrgreen:

Hehe and they got rid of them as soon as possible too!
In selecting the motto... 'all for one and one for all'... I have done so because it expresses what should be the creed to every Fighter Pilot. Never forget that you are an essential cog in the wheel, and if you break or fail it will let down your brother pilots, and the grimness of war allows for no such weakness.

"The Royal Air Force is reported to be very pleased with the Airacobra"

Yeah right, so pleased in fact they stuck the lot of them on a muddy airfield in Yorkshire and couldn't wait to offload them to the Russians. :mrgreen:
