WW2 planes

  1. 1. WW2 planesEwan Milnes
  2. 2. spitfirev The spitfire was manufactured by super marine and the designer was R.J.Mitchell.v During the Battle of Britain , the Spitfire was perceived by the public as the RAF fighter of the battle, though the more numerous Hawker Hurricane shouldered a greater proportion of the burden against the Luftwaffe. The Spitfire units had a lower attrition rate and a higher victory-to-loss ratio than those flying Hurricanes.v User: R.A.F•
  3. 3. Hawker Hurricane mk.1v TOP SPEED: 324mph.v WEPONS: 8x .303 machine guns.v Manufactured by Hawker aircraft, Gloster aircraft company, Canadian car and foundry, and Austin motor company.v Designer Sydney Camm.v User: R.A.F
  4. 4. Avro Lancasterv Top speed:846mphv The Avro Lancaster is a British four- engine Second World War heavy bomber designed and built by Avro for the Royal Air Force (RAF). It first saw active service with RAF Bomber Command in 1942 and, as the strategic bombing offensive over Europe gathered momentum, it became the main heavy bomber used by the RAF, the RCAF, and squadrons from other Commonwealth and European countries serving within the RAF, overshadowing its close contemporaries the Handley Page Halifax and Short Stirling.[1] The "Lanc", as it was affectionately known,[2] thus became the most famous and most successful of the Second World War night bombers, "delivering 608,612 long tons of bombs in 156,000 sorties
  5. 5. Junkers ju 87v The Junkers ju 87 is a dive bomber which made them drop their bombs accurately on the targets such as industrial cities and R.A.F air fields.
  6. 6. Dornier Do 17v The Dornier Do 17, sometimes referred to as the Fliegender Bleistift (German: "flying pencil"), was a World War II German light bomber produced by Claudius Dorniers company, Dornier Flugzeugwerke. It was designed as a Schnellbomber ("fast bomber"), a light bomber which, in theory, would be so fast that it could outrun defending fighter aircraft.
  7. 7. Boeing B-17 Flying Fortressv The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is a four-engine heavy bomber aircraft developed in the 1930s for the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC). Competing against Douglas and Martin for a contract to build 200 bombers, the Boeing entry outperformed both competitors and more than met the Air Corps expectations. Although Boeing lost the contract because the prototype crashed, the Air Corps was so impressed with Boeings design that they ordered 13 more B-17s for further evaluation.
  8. 8. B-29 Super Fortressv The B-29 Super fortress is a four- engine propeller-driven heavy bomber designed by Boeing that was flown primarily by the United States toward the end of World War II and during the Korean War. It was one of the largest aircraft to see service in World War II and a very advanced bomber for its time, with features such as a pressurized cabin, an electronic fire-control system, and remote- controlled machine-gun turrets.
