An airfield in North Africa (I think), I wish I knew the story behind this one of my Grandad's #WW2 pictures. . . . . . . . #ww2aviation #ww2dailyhistory #ww2raf #RAFww2 #raf #ww2pictures #ww2photos #ww2planes #aviation #militaryhistory #military #spitfire #hurricane #wellington #messerschmitt

Reposted from @warbirdexperience_uk With four .50 caliber machine guns mounted in each wing, the Thunderbolt could shred both enemy warplanes and ground targets alike with equal ferocity. Its internal stores were capable of holding 3,400 rounds (the Mustang’s six guns could pack only 1,800 bullets), which enabled the P-47 to unleash a torrent of lead for 30 seconds straight. While the Jug did poorly in fast turning dogfights against smaller planes, it was at its best when diving on (or “bouncing”) enemy fighters with all guns blazing. It was even more effective as a ground attack aircraft; it was capable of carrying as much as 3,000 pounds of external ordnance. In fact, when fully armed, a P-47 Thunderbolt could deliver about half the payload of a B-17 Flying Fortress. When equipped with 4.5-inch M8 rockets, the Jug had the firepower equal to a battery of 105 mm howitzers. . . . #p47thunderbolt #p47 #warplane #warbird #warthunderplanes #warthundermemes #pilot #airshows #airshow #ww2 #ww2planes #pictureoftheday #avgeek #avporn #avpics #avphotography #aviation #ww2aviation #aircraft #aircraftphotography #planes #harvardpower #aeroplanes #Andygoodallpilot #pilot #pilotselfie #aviation #aviators #aviationlovers

@lyonairmuseum ***B-25 Coming Alive Updates***: . . Work continues on Lyon Air Museum's North American TB-25N/B-25J-20-NC Mitchell "Guardian of Freedom" under the museum's chief warbird mechanic Mr. Bob Gonzales and Martin Aviation mechanics have been hard at work making progress utilizing the safety measures put in place during the museums closing to the public. . These past couple months, the overhauled and inspected propellers were mounted and the overhauled carburetors were installed. New brakes were installed, and systems checked. New radios were also added with new GPS antennas, and ADS-B out installed. Various airframe inspections were completed, and inspection panels put back in place and secured. Fluid systems were leak checked as well as new fluid hoses and hose sections inspected and leak checked. Engine runs, to finalize prop and carburetor installation were also undertaken. There are more ongoing inspections, and maintenance work to be performed as necessary. And the hard work and dedication of the team has shown greatly in their efforts and work. . . #lyonairmuseum #warbirds #warbird #wherewarbirdsfly #wwiiaviation #wwii #ww2 #ww2aviation #northamericanb25 #avgeek #northamericanb25mitchell #northamericanb25jmitchell #b25 #b25j #b25mitchell #b25jmitchell #northamericanmitchell #ww2aircraft #wwiiaircraft #ww2aviationhistory #aircraftmaintenance #aviationmuseum #warbirdmaintenance #tb25n #tb25nmitchell

EVENTS OF THE DAY - May 24th 1948 FERDINAND CONSPIRACY - Leader of the Royal Party, Duke Ferdinand wrote to the leader of the Nationalist Mordovia, Ivan Kraljevic officially setting the date for the military operation against the Pelovac Government for July 23rd. Ferdinand is further attempting to destabilize the ruling coalition by attempting to veto the NDC's rejection of Regent Proposal which would see his sister-in-law, Princess Irene who would take over as regent for her 3-year old son, future King Maximilian XII. PASOVIN'S TESTIMONY - The case of the century as the media spectacularly called it began in front of Republican State Council with Matija Pasovin testifying on Jucchiene Affair and the role of RKNS in the operation that has taken part illegally on French territory. Pasovin has once again stated his innocence and denied any allegations of abuse of power and any involvement in the murder of Sebastien Jucchiene and his family. He will be questioned tommorow by Chief of Security Affairs, Andrej Malinski as well as Christophe Voulgere, the French investigator. ESCALATION IN THE SOUTH - 28 killed and 176 wounded is the today's casualty count as the Southern Crisis escalates once more with Penev's forces launching a full on assault on PLMS positions that saw a great deal of fighters on both sides wounded. Royal Corps has deployed troops to the area of Krushina border attacking Penevist border guards capturing two border outposts in these attacks. Prime Minister Martha Ratanovsky has once again stated that the Royal Corps will not intervene in the conflict fully, but that they will actively take part in territorial defense of Mordovian people and interests.

A P-47 Thunderbolt aircraft of the 56th Fighter Group (named "Belle of Belmont") - denoted by the distinctive red painted nose of the aircraft. This P-47 is carrying drop fuel tanks which were jettisoned by the pilot when empty. The tanks increased the operational range of the fighter aircraft. #wwii #ww2 #wwiiincolor #wwiicolor #ww2history #ww2aviation #ww2incolor #fighterairplane #aviation #airplane #aircraft #airforce #warbird #airfield #warplane #history #plane #aviationphotographyy #aviationhistory #instaplanes #planespotting #instaaviation #planelovers #p47thunderbolt #usaaf #scalemodels

FHC’s P-47D Thunderbolt, a few things Lt Colonel Huie Lamb told me about this plane I never knew. When 100 octane fuel became readily available it completely changed the power characteristics, climb rate improved dramatically as well as top speed. Seeing the “Jug” in person and up close, I never realized how big it is. There is a reason why the A-10 was named the Thunderbolt 2, these planes could take a pounding and dish out some serious ground attack damage. Was pretty darn good in a dog fight too. Huie Lamb was 19 years old when he shot down his first German aircraft. We can barely get a 19 year old to take out the trash these days..lol God bless our greatest generation #ww2aviation #p47thunderbolt #p47 #flyingheritagecollection #ww2 #ww2history #luftwaffe #a10 #aviation #aviationlovers #thegreatestgeneration #ww2planes #ww2pilots

Final design of the Eddie Rickenbacker’s Spad XIII . In store now🤙😎. Below is Rickenbacker’s MOH citation ... just a casual 1 v 7 battle 😬. CMOH citation: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action against the enemy near Billy, France, 25 September 1918. While on a voluntary patrol over the lines, 1st Lt. Rickenbacker attacked 7 enemy planes (5 type Fokker, protecting two type Halberstadt). Disregarding the odds against him, he dived on them and shot down one of the Fokkers out of control. He then attacked one of the Halberstadts and sent it down also. www.iloveahangar.com 🤙😎 . 🛩CUSTOM REQUESTS AVAILABLE ⚒ . www.iloveahangar.com 👍 #aviationlovers #instagramaviation #aviationgeek #airforce #warbirds #ww2aviation #ww2aircraft #usaaf #94thaerosquadron #airshow #airshows #eddierickenbacker #medalofhonor #spadxiii #ww1
