    The USA was the arsenal of the world for sure.A bit of trivia I read once stated more Aluminium was used in the production of the B24 than any other single project of WW2.The production of airframes by the USA in WW2 was a magnificant and unparalleled industrial achievement.

    Hi Guys
    Great thread, which air force was best? if the RAF hadn't won the B of B there wouldn't have been a war for the 8th Airforce to get into. The Germans would have turned on Russia and had a free hand. America would have probobly had to fight Japan so imagine just what the world would be like today? Steve Bungay 's book "Most Dangerous Enemy" sums it up The RAF kept the war going so everyone else could get involved!!
    RAF clearly the best but then I'm biased as I live 200 yards from the end of 03 runway of RAF Kenley in Surrey, I'm old enough to remember Spits and Hurries taking off when they made "Reach for the Sky", My Grandfather flew aircraft form there back to France inWW1 and my Grannie took shelter under tha NAFFI counter while it was bombed. I have private photos of Kenneth More giving autographs and next Sunday will be sitting in the 1920's RAF building that is home to Caterham and Kenley Branch RAFA drinking a pint of best.
