P-47 Thunderbolt Video Series

Post by Admin (Dietrich) »

I've been watching a series on the P47 Thunderbolt, which has bee posted on "Greg's Airplanes and Automobiles" YouTube channel. The chap has done incredibly detailed research and knows his subject very well. The series has only been partly completed (it does seem quite the undertaking), but I figured I'd post up links to the videos that have been done so far.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzQuq2FHdeE -- P-47 Thunderbolt Pt. 1 Design and Speed
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwP6qv8jOhI -- P-47 Thunderbolt Pt. 2 Dive Speeds and Mach Numbers
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCNt3J65UqE -- P-47 Thunderbolt Pt. 3 Armor and Protection
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHUmWTnBuhU -- P-47 Thunderbolt Pt. 4a Climb Performance

Already it is great set of videos and highly recommended... even if you don't particularly like the P-47*. There are a lot of interesting factors and all aircraft enthusiasts arguing their particular aircraft would do well to emulate this chap's level of detail, research and references in their own arguments.

* Best quote... "this tubby airplane" (Pt4a. 18:27). It's a P-47 "tubby" from now on!
