YouTube - OLD " 666"
This was on "Dogfights" on the History Channel, and it's sure noteworthy.
they should have armored the nose and tail. it wouldn't have added more than a couple hundred pounds of load. i liked the pilot's line-of-sight machine gun. it made it the biggest fighter plane in history. even scored kills.
Book out on this aircraft and the famous mission. "Lucky 666: The Impossible Mission" by Bob Drury and Tom Clavin
We cover this mission in detail in Ken's Men Against the Empire, Volume I.
