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
