    Ok, and in riddle form. Batman would have loved to have flown this experimental USAAC twin if it wasn't plagued with engine cooling issues...

    Yes, Bacham Ba349 Natter (Viper). One unsuccessful manned flight, another rumored. Something about those late war Nazi desperation weapons fascinate me. Your go!
    Okay. In the summer of 1940, the Spitfires and Hurricanes were relatively easy prey for the 109's. In September, the Spits and Hurricanes put up a much better fight. Why? (Hint: I'm not talking about radar, the channel, distances, fuel, tactics, etc; just the planes themselves.) Thanks; Ernie P.

    Republic Thunderscreech...and it had a "Super Sonic" propeller...turbo-prop development of the F-84

    Would make people sick from the high pitched sound and vibrations if they got too close.

    Because the Luftwaffe switched to bombing London instead of airfields? (I just watched The World At War on the Military Channel, and it was episode #4 on the BoB )

    Edit: oops, maybe that's "tactics" so ???

    Well proptop got mine right first but your question is still up...and I don't know! I'd agree with the switching to terror bombing London.

    Are we waiting for Ernie P.?
    I only have one more question according to the rules...so I'm trying to come up with a good one.

    Only other thing I can think of right off hand, to answer Ernie's question is maybe an improved version of the Spitfire and Hurricane or the RR Merlin engines?

    edit: spelling

    A lot was happening with both types at this time. The improved Mk II Hurricane was being issued for the first time and the Spitfire (and possibly Hurricane) was receiving new VHF radios and IFF trancievers making for a better fighter.
    I'll have to get to reading if this is not the right answer.

    EDIT!!!
    Ah,, yes the Spit MK II was being received by squadrons in August as well.

    Cheers,
