    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    While the P63 Black Widow was the 1st US aircraft designed from the beginning as a radar equipped night fighter, other types were used for the job as modified versions of earlier aircraft including the P 38 Lightning, P70 Havoc (a modified A 20 Havoc medium bomber), F4U Corsair and F6F Hellcat-by the time the purpose built P63 became operational in 1945 there were few targets available for it in Europe or the Pacific as the Axis forces were collapsing but it was operational and effective.
    PS The missiles were being tested long after the war when the obsolete F63 (post war designation change from 'Pursuit' to 'Fighter') was used as a test aircraft.
