About This Quiz

World War II planes are not just a part of history; they are symbols of ingenuity, sacrifice, and courage!

If there is one thing that is iconic about World War II and the era that it took place in, it is the dedicated and durable machines that played a big role in the conflict. This quiz is not for amateur flyboys; it is for knowledgeable aviation enthusiasts that can appreciate the rugged beauty of these metal birds.

In the United States alone there were more than 300,000 airplanes that were produced during World War II – proving that their importance on the battlefield was well understood and appreciated. As a testament to just how skillfully a lot of these World War II planes were designed and made, many of them still have models that are flyable to this day.

While it is possible to see many of them in museums all across the US and across the world, there is nothing quite like seeing an F4F Wildcat or a B-17 soar through the sky like a graceful yet deadly predator.

So strap in flying ace and let’s see if you can navigate this dogfight of a quiz!
