    We used P-51's (renamed F-51 but basically the same shit) through to the Korean war and that was about all for them, they were decommissioned in the late 50s.

    Man the view from a canopy looks a bit fucked up.

    You fly with Chuck Norris? :noes:

    If you've ever seen pictures of the canopy since the way the glass is made (or other material?) it's warped when stretched like that.

    Same as the sides of your windshield in a car.

    That's because it was so thick... made to be bulletproof in fact. I guess bullet-resistant would be better though :hsugh:

    The bubble canopy was much better than the old birdcage type one: Here and Here (2nd is a game, but gives you an idea). We use polycarbonate (sp?) on out jets, still a little distortion in some areas but overall much better.
