American warplanes

The United States was a major producer of aircraft in the late 1930s and early 1940s, as the world was on the brink of war. The US aircraft industry developed and manufactured many types of planes, such as fighters, bombers, transports, and trainers, for both domestic and foreign use. Some of the most famous US aircraft of that era include the B-17 Flying Fortress, the P-51 Mustang, the C-47 Skytrain, and the AT-6 Texan. The US aircraft industry played a vital role in the Allied victory in World War II, providing air superiority and support for ground and naval forces.
