The 5 W's
In world war 2 aircraft was the most important weapons delivery system. Most aircraft during and before the 1900s were made of wood and fabric. Boeing is a US company that made many types of aircraft for World War 2. The B-25 was the most successful design in all theatres of war, it was twin engined, all metal and reached a maximum speed of 303 mph. It carried a total of eight heavy machine guns wich made it very well defended. The Boeing P-26 Peashooter was the first all metal fighter built for the US in 1933 and only two were ordered. The Boeing B-17 flying fortress was first constructed in 1934 and reached flight within the next year. It had reached a top speed of 287 mph and was the most well known. As the war became more intense, additional armor was needed and president Roosevelt called for the production of 50,000 military airplanes. There are a total of 399 World War 2 aircraft in the military factory.
