WW II Aircraft
The Freeman Airfield project, Operation Lusty:
Immediately after the end of the war in Europe, General Hap Arnold issued a directive calling on the U.S. forces to obtain at least one copy of every aircraft used by the Axis forces. The Freeman Army Airfield in Seymour, Indiana was designated as the location to evaluate each of these airplanes. The Indiana Military Organization maintains an incredibly detailed website that includes a great deal of information about each of these captured WW II aircraft.
Some interesting facts about the airplanes of World War II.
