twin-engined jet question

Recommended Posts


Could be the F-101 Voodoo...

-Taiwan/China 1959(RF-101A): photo flights, 2 reportedly shot down.

-Vietnam 1961(RF-101C): first jet to be stationed and used there, first lost in 1964.

-Cuba 1962(RF-101A): photo flights

 

Wish to see in TW games once!

Was it the F2H Banshee or was it the P-80 Shooting Star? :blink: Good question...

 

 

The P-80 was the first single-engined aircraft of the USA to be operational and "in combat",

in Italy in late 1944.

 

:good:

The P-80s sent to Europe in late 1944 were actually just four pre-production aircraft and did not participate in any kind of combat operation. :wink: They were rather used as demonstrators for the units deployed there.

I think he's right that it was the F2H for US twin engine in combat...though not air-air combat...

 

For giggles, think the first US 4-jet in combat was the RB-45 Tornado

definitely single engine. When I flew (in the backseat) of the T-33 which was the trainer mod of the same plane, it most definitely had only one, very weak, motor.

Some of those RB-45 Tornado's flew without serial numbers with RAF roundels on clandestine flights in the 1950's I believe. Still classified AFAIK.
