World War 2 Planes – The Advent of Modern Aviation

Dear visitor,

If you’re reading this, you most probably have a keen interest in World War 2 planes. So do I. This site is the result of my passion for the technical leaps that were made between 1939 and 1945, as the engineers from the countries at war entered in a fierce competition to create heavier, faster and more agile military aircraft. World War 2 aircraft, especially those using jet engines, were quite different from the ones that had been flown before. Even by today’s general aviation standards, these airplanes’ performances are impressing.

For information about a specific aircraft use the navbar on the right to browse by country or through the alphabetical index.

If you don’t find the aircraft you’re seeking, please let me know – this site is a work-in-progress, and I’d like to provide visitors with what they’re looking for. The goal is to gather World War 2 plane pictures and information for everyone to browse. Doing this work on a part-time basis, the process pace might be rather moderate. You may
want to bookmark the site and come back in a few weeks. In the beginning, I will focus on the most famous Word War 2 planes.

Besides, you may know someone (be it your father, uncle, grand-father or great-uncle) who’s been a World War 2 plane pilot or crew member; their memories are priceless, so if you’re willing to have them preserved here, feel free to contact me and send your stories.

I hope you enjoy your visit.
