...There's also some footage of a WWII air combat
scene. You gotta understand my love of the P-51
Mustang. With a Merlin 12 cylinder 1,590hp
engine, and six .50 Cal machine guns, no radar,
no muffler, it basically ripped the wings off
Stukas. But lets not let the P-47 Thunderbolt.
Sonofabitch had a Pratt&Whitney 18 cylinder
2,300hp engine and eight .50 cal machine guns,
but it was a bit heavy. Any well made movie with
a hint of WWII air combat is up there with me.
