Air Classics Magazine question

Hello Everyone,

I recall AC had some good articles on wartime missions and unusual aircraft. Is there an online article database? Looking for two issues- one dealing with a French tri-motor equipped with a 75mm and the other regarding the June 8, 1944 B25 antishipping strike against some Japanese DDs near Biak. It had an unusual photo of Major Tennille's aircraft in flames over the Japanese ships. The text was very detailed as to the effects of the .50s on troops on deck. Gritty.

Both are 1970s era published articles.

I see many on Ebay and regrettably rare details as to the contents.

All help appreciated.

Re: Air Classics Magazine question

Sir, have you written to the Editors of this magazine? Maybe they can be of assistance and do have a TI Data that could properly your answer.

By the way this is quite an interesting subject and do hope that you did not forget also the 37mm flying guns used by the French onto some of their WW1 machines.

IF a book arise from this subject, please keep us updated....

A.

Hello Adriano,

I found the B25 attack article. It was from Air Classics October 1969. "Suicide at Cape Waios."
I expect to find the other one soon.
Trawled Ebay by year and closely examined the covers for the issue topic listings.

I found the other one. It is in Wings June 1982.
