Airplane of the year
 
Good afternoon Gentlemen,

this is simply an opinion thread.
In my personal opinion the most impressive military airplanes of the WW2 calendar years were:
  • 1939: Ju 87 Stuka (Blitzkrieg)
  • 1940: Hurricane (Battle of Britain)
  • 1941: Bf 109 (Barbarossa)
  • 1942: SBD Dauntless (scourge of the carriers)
  • 1943: Fw 190 (claim records on the Eastern front)
  • 1944: P-51 Mustang (deep into the Third Reich)
  • 1945: B-29 Superfortress (inferno)
  • aircraft of the war: Il-2 Shturmovik (victory through tenacity)
Have a nice Tuesday,

Michael
