For me it's a toss-up between the P51D and the P38 Lightning.

It's the title of the topic (WWII Fighter Aircraft). But yeah, the dirigibles were pretty slick. Weren't they almost exclusively on the East coast?

I have always loved the Supermarine Spifire.

My grandfathers brother was a Lt-Colonel, Wing Commander Flying, in the RAF during WW2.

Unfortunatelly he was killed 3 February 1945..
He had finnished his last mission, but he asked for one more, before he was going home.
He did not return from that one..

Shot down and/or crashed, probably because of a drop-tank that was not released after a dive..

Here's some info and pictures, his name Rolf Arne Berg. (pic 2 and 4)
