Lately I've developed an interest in western front aviation, post BOB, and am looking for some stuff:

-color or good (quality pics) of high(er) altitude combat, especially of fighters involved in the usaf vs. luftwaffe daylight bombing campaign (something about combat @ 20000ft is amazing to me)

-a photo of an inside of a Bf 109 (my favorite) or possibly P47/51 cockpit/window thingie in flight

- a photo of a me 109G/110G in flight

Basically stuff from the daylight bombing campaign, I already have seen a wealth but these are the things that i'd like to see more, and if any of you guys have seen any of the stuff im looking for umm... share?http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Holy crap! I've seen that very P-47 ("Big *** Bird II") from the photo! I wrote about it recently in another thread-- its prop wash almost blew me away when it taxied by at an air show when I was a kid! I'll see if I can find photos of it, I know I have them somewhere.
