Flying Legends



Located at the Ogden Hinckley Airport we have a natural affinity for model airplanes. 






The Lockheed P-38 Lightning (the can opener), or as the Japanese called it, 2 planes 1 Pilot, is an Americana single seated, twin piston engine fighter aircraft used during World War 2. Designed for the Air Corps by the Lockheed Corporation. Along with its use as a general fighter, the P-38 was used in various aerial combat roles such as a highly effective fighter bomber, a night fighter and long range escort fighter when equipped with drop tanks. The Lightning could reliably hit targets at any range, up to 1000 yards. The P-38 was also the first American fighter to make extensive use of stainless steel and smooth aluminum skin panels. Not only that but it was also the military airplane to fly faster than 400mph in level flight.
P51 Mustang is an American lang range, single seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during world war 2 and the Korean war. The Mustang was designed to use the Allison V-1710 which had limited high altitude performance, so the engine wa later replaced with a Rolls-Royce Merlin which transformed the aircraft's performance at high altitudes above 15,000 ft. The P-51 was an effective bomber escort. It used a reliable engine with external fuel tanks. It could accompany the bombers from england to germany and back. The P-51 was not just used for the british and american forces but the Australia, Bolivia, Canada, Costa Rica and Cuba just to name a few.









The B-25 Mitchell is an American medium bomber that was introduced in 1941. Used by many allied air forces, the B-25 served in every theater of World War 2, and after the war ended many remained in service for decades. The b25 was used in the attack on Japan following Pearl Harbor, also known as Doolittle's Raid. The majority in American service were used in the war against Japan in Asia. The B-25 was a safe and forgiving aircraft to fly. Even with one engine out, 60 degree banding turns into the dead engine were still possible, and control could easily be maintained down to 145mph. The tricycle landing gear made for excellent visibility while taxiing. It was such a great plane that the only complaint was the extremely high noise the engine made. As a result many pilots eventually suffered from hearing loss.
The Spad S.Xlll is a french biplane fighter aircraft of WW1. The S.Xlll uses a powerful new geared version of the successful Hispano-Suiza 8A engine. The span proved to be one of the most capable fighters of the war, as well aws one of the most produced planes. By the end of WW1 the S.Xlll had equipped virtually every fighter squadron of the Aeronautique militaire. It proved popular with its pilots; numerous aces from various nations flew the S.Xlll during their flying careers. The spad was armed with a pair of forward mounted Vickers machine guns with 400 rounds per gun, which took place of the single gun that had been used on the earlier aircraft.









This early aircraft featured fabric covered wings, and a wooden, two bladed, fixed propeller. At first the tailwheel was designed to be retractable but early on it was discovered the the hurricane needed larger rudder to improve the control during the spin. So the lower part of the rudder was extended and a ventral was added to the fuselage. The hurricane was very easy to land and take-off because of its wide, stable platform. It was able to operate from all sorts of adverse airfield surfaces with ease. The hurricane was armed with 87.7mm machine guns. The armament was arranged in two lots of four in large gun bays incorporated into outer wing panels.
