"Fork-tailed Devil" to the Germans - the Lockheed Lightning, my favorite fighter from World War II. America's highest scoring ace, Richard Ira Bong, flew his to 40 kills. Yeager was pretty good in this plane also.
One of the many women who worked manufacturing the war machines that propelled Allied Forces to victory in World War II was Pauline Mauck. She was a real life “Rosie the Riveter” who worked in a Republic Aviation plant in Evansville, Iowa during WWII
Pan Am stewardess, designed by Edith Head. A distinctively classy look. Truly the glory days of commercial aviation. (I actually worked on this aircraft years later, before Pan-am went out of business)
