  1. Have the Boeing PELICAN enter service

    That's a lot of disappointed diners.
  2. Have the Boeing PELICAN enter service

    The Americans had built the C-5. Not much smaller then the AN-225.

    Wow. Lancs in Thailand. Who would have thought. And the building of this TL's Bangkok to Rangoon railroad won't be built over the bones of slave labour. I do like this TL.

    It's rather impressive. A double derailing you see. Sheep= clothing and food. :)
  5. WI: NACA Modified P-38

    Since it doesn't look like my proposed heating and ventilation redesign for the OTL P-38 would've have been a practical approach let's take another look at would Lockheed actually did in OTL. Taking a close look at figure # 371 that EverKing has posted at post # 2679 it can be seen that, at...
  6. WI: NACA Modified P-38

    That sounds like a fun Summer time day trip when, hopefully, the pandemic is winding down. Please take a few pictures or videos if you do go. BTW, can you tell us which P-38 is owned by family friends?

    The USS Altamaha was a Bogue class escort carrier. How many aircraft could she and her sisters have been carrying on that mission? These ships could carry a lot, if the planes were disassembled for transport. Perhaps close to 100 depending on type. If a Bogue class carrier was on operational...
  8. WI: NACA Modified P-38

    I got a much better look at the centre section leading edge in this video. Going by that cutaway drawing I posted earlier I had thought it was mainly a wiring harness that runs behind the leading edge. In fact it's mainly hydraulic lines. And the previously discussed fuel line. It looks quite...

    More of a movable feast I would think. But then it's Italian, not French.

    What would be the ramifications of no Africa Corp being sent to North Africa if the British wind up the campaign in early 1941?
  11. Sir John Valentine Carden survives.

    But why not? When the superiority of the Vickers Victor starts becoming evident is there not people in the British establishment, the Army and Ministry of Supply who can use the stick of wartime government authority and the carrot of offering generous contracts to compel the other companies to...
  12. WI: NACA Modified P-38

    I didn't recognize that there were fuel lines running behind the centre section leading edge. It seems like a vulnerable spot to me. The P-38 can be flown without hydraulics and any wiring harness damage that might be inflicted by hits on the leading edge. But the pressurized fuel lines are...
  13. WI: NACA Modified P-38

    That's all good. Real life takes precedence.

    The official WW2 terminology was; "Shit! I'm out of ammo!"

    Instructor calls out "Private Brown." "YESSIR!!!"
