I am expanding the resource centers to include military aircraft from 1920-1972. This will include all nationalities eventually. What I need volunteers for is to supply me with the basic data for individual aircraft types. You can use the format below but is is flexible, if you have information that should be there add the catagory (ie.. Fuel: 200 Gallons)

If there is a catagory you don't have info for just put in N/A, when you get a profile done copy and paste it in a reply to this message. I will grab it and will create a list of those I have. You can also add information to exsisting entries in the various resource centers. Check the site first before you do something to make sure it isn't already done.

With my having to acquire a real job my time is cut down just when the site is growing. I want to continue to make this the premiere sight for warbirds and such so any help is appreciated. Thanks. Feel free to e-mail me or PM me if you have any questions

Might I also recommend a proof reader to follow up on these that are created? No offense meant to anyone that helps out, but a second pair of eyes is always good. I worked in the printing business for 20 years, and OBOY!

That would definately be a help. However anybody who notices a spelling error anywhere in the page can e-mail me a note and I'll fix it. But I must request you copy the URL of the page with the error. You have no idea how many times someone has e-mailled me saying I spelled a word wrong in one of the resource centers with no further information. There are over 50,000 files that comprise this site so a little help narrowing it down would be helpful :)
