Fastest single-engine fighter of WWII (Mosquito may have been faster); said to have exceeded Mach 1 in a dive. Typically the USAF slowed it down by loading it with heavy armament (tank busting rockets) but then there's no point in having a war plane if it can't make war.

Compression of standing material gives better sense of immediacy to blog. Lettering on main pic not easy to read. I take it you've played around with the size of this pic; to occupy box with my montage a width of 615 pixels did the job.
