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:


Best Regards.

Hello, I am not sure if Airframe Assemblies, Isle of  Wight might be able to help. They build and restore Spitfire fuselages for flying aircraft or possibly Aircraft Restoration Company based at Duxford.

I share with you a collection of photos of the most produced Soviet fighter of all time, including some rare photos of the plane with Allied markings. We're talking about Yakovlev Yak-9, the first Soviet aircraft to shoot down a Me-262. To see a full report and the photos, visit the link below:

What were the cannon stubs/fairings that were inserted into the unused outboard cannon ports on the Spitfire "c" wings?  I have seen references to them being wood or rubber.  Also, when the e-wing was introduced with the .50 cal in the inner cannon bay, what was used to seal the gun port?  Was it tape, or something else?  Thanks in advance.

The link below provides a collection of photos, including some rare showing planes captured by the Germans with Finnish markings. Do you agree with the statement that the Petlyakov Pe-2 was the best light bomber of World War II? Visit the link, see the photos and give your opinion.


Best Regards.

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 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:


Best Regards.
