This thread (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=23110283&m=147102874) made me curious. Does there exist anywhere a list or FAQ of when the various models of aircraft in FB entered and/or were withdrawn from service? Such a list would help in the creation of historical scenarios.

I think that the information would need to be more specific; for example, the Hurricane was in service from 1939 right up to 1945, but it was never seen in the Western European theatre in the latter years, I'm not sure about in Russia.

It would be a major project to compile that info, given the number of aircraft in FB/AEP, so rather than trying to bung it all in one project, if the various virtual squadrons just researched which aircraft were available to them on a given date and place, that would be helpful in resolving some of the ambiguity.
