For Ages 10 and Up.
The P-47D was a workhorse of the U.S. Army Air Force during the last half of World War II, and saw action in both the European and Pacific theaters of the war. Although its 2000 hp R-2800 "Double Wasp" engine and exhaust turbine made the aircraft large and heavy, these proved to be no barrier to high performance, and it was utilized not only as an escort to U.S. bombers, but its bomb load capacity made it outstanding in the ground attack role.
