    These single engine Skyraiders had greater ordnance payloads then 4 engine B-17's and B-24's...do water closets classify as unconventional weapons?

    The lead article is really good; the follow-on regarding May 1939 and MS St. Louis of Hamburg even better, off topic but ultimately topical.

    I believe it was also the last plane to be flown by enlisted men. I remember seeing a few flying sergeants in the AD squadron. I was in an A-4 (Skyhawk) squadron and all jet pilots were officers.
