A place to share anything about anything flying in the last great war.
Welcome to r/WWIIplanes.
Most anything goes here as long as it's related to the subject of WWII aircraft. Videos and schematics of actual planes, to models, engines, weapons, paint schemes, sound effects, video games, history, pictures, stories...if it involves flight in WWII it's fair game
Things aren't too serious around here, just don't be a douche. There will be pictures of swastikas.
Apart from that: have fun , be interesting, submit content and spread the word about this subreddit if you know anyone who likes the subject.
Now what pilot would be ready to fly without his badge and what plane without it's markings? You need flair! Without it you might be mistaken for the enemy and shot out of the skies.
Selecting your flair is as easy as getting Hermann Göring to eat schnitzel. Simply select the edit option next to your name on the right of the screen. Select the desired flair and save. Voila, all done. For more information on flair, or more detailed instructions on adding your own HERE
Users wanting Canadian flair, please see this thread.

Did the first pilot use rounds from the M61A1 Vulcan rotary cannon, because he needed merely a handful and they are cheaper? I know from military service that militaries don't want you to shoot rabbits with elephant guns, or kill flies with cruise missiles. On August 29, 1998, Canadian Major Roland Lavoie remarked, "Also, it might be overkill spending a couple of hundred thousand dollars on a missile to shoot down a balloon that's drifting away." I can't identify the air-to-air missile ("AAM") from this Youtube video, but it costs more than the handful of rounds from the F-14's rotary cannon.
