GUEST,Roger Knowles US planes different to euro ones - WW2 (40) RE: US planes different to euro ones - WW2 03 Jul 15

My dear departed Dad flew an English aircraft for the first month of WW2,an Avro Anson, which was hopeless for the job it was given.
After that, US aircraft mainly, the B17 Fortress, the Lockheed Hudson and the Consolidated B-24 Liberator.
He told me, over drinks, that without US aircraft, in his opinion, he would have been unable to complete his role in Coastal Command.
Just an opinion from a man with 5800 flying hours, a Distinguished Flying Medal, the sinker of U-Boat 540, who started as an AC2 and ended as a Squadron Leader.
