    OK, lets give this a shot. I thought I had a good one all set to go for test pilot between 1940-45, developing aircraft flown by US military. Held many records including speed and altitude, but they were kept unofficial due to the war. Decided it might not be considered warbird related enough, so I shelved it for now.

    This one might be a little too easy, but here it goes!

    1. This aircraft was designed as a long range escort
    2. Has twin engines
    3. Was produced in large numbers for WWII

    OK I hope I can make this a stumper. Here are the first three clues.

    1. This aircraft was used as a primary trainer between 1932 and 1959.
    2. It used an inverted 4-cylinder inline, 130 hp engine for power.
    3. During World War II it was used by the militaries of allied nations and the military of at least one axis nation.

    Good luck!

    That was my thought as well, but I wasn't sure about the engine horsepower and axis use.

    I'm interested in seeing the answer on this one!!

    The clues fit, but that doesn't mean anything. Mr Wikipedia says the Tiger Moth II, or DH 82A had a de Havilland Gipsy Major I engine (130 hp), and that Germany did have a few.

    We will see

    Outstanding! Tiger Moth is correct!

    Just a side note, the next clue would have been: Although most variants were built as open cockpits some were built with canopies.

    Too easy!

    The DH.82C's used in Canada had canopies, metal struts, cockpit heat, brakes and a tailwheel. That way they could train for more than 5 months of the year. I prefer British Moths tho'.. here's my scale model.

    I'll throw one in to the mix, forgive me if it is too easy.

    Several WWII documentaries annoyingly use file footage of this aircraft instead of the Fi-103.

    I don't know the answer, but going to take a guess. Since we are talking documentaries, Hollywood wouldn't have been tryiing to make other aircraft look like a VI, so I'm going to guess the documentary film makers might have used V-2 footage by mistake

    I actually think I remember a couple documentaries using the ME-163 Comet for this... but I'm pretty vague here

    Nope. The Fi-103 is the Buzz Bomb, no mistaking it for a V-2 or Komet..

    My first guess would be the Yokosuka MXY-7 Ohka (Cherry Blossom) rocket powered human-guided anti-shipping kamikaze attack plane.
    United States sailors gave the aircraft the nickname, “Baka”, (Japanese for "fool" or "idiot")
