"Fork-tailed Devil" to the Germans - the Lockheed Lightning, my favorite fighter from World War II. America's highest scoring ace, Richard Ira Bong, flew his to 40 kills. Yeager was pretty good in this plane also.
Avro Lancaster: Considered Britain's greatest bomber for WWII. Main aircraft used for night assaults on Germany. Four engines allow the plane to fly at and the heavy bomber delivered a bigger bomb load than any other plane in to be exact.
World War II-- British fighter aircraft are being produced in increasing numbers. Here are Spitfires in production, in a factory where women play an important part, and are employed in nearly all branches of construction.
