Anyway if anyone has some suggestions please fill free to tell me im all ears.
Hey its been nice to see all of you guys again.....well not realy se you but you get the idea.
Anyway GIT-R-DONE..............bye guys
The history of the DC-3, both in war and peace.
Wing Commander J. R. D. 'Bob' Braham was the highest decorated pilot from WWII i believe and was a night fighter ace
Also Reginald Joseph Mitchell who designed the amazing Supermarine Spitfire and gave his health in exchange for giving his country one of the best and most iconic Fighter Aircraft in the world.
Richard Bong was the top American ace in WW2. He flew the P-38 Lightning.
Marge was his wife.
Try writing about this guy
Manfred von Richthofen
General Curtis Lemay the founder of the Stratigic Air Command (SAC)
hi guys thanks for the help but i would like to do someone that was not in WW2 no offence to anyone. so i think im going to do the founder of the
STRATEGIC AIR COMMAND. once again thanks for your help.
I`m going to ask my english teacher if he will be suitable if not then I`ll do someone else.
KEEP POSTING PLEASE!!!!!!!!
i dont know what id do without you guys so
The Red Baron (Mannfred) was WWI actually, but I guess it's still war so prolly don't matter that much.
While Chuck Yeager was a fighter pilot he went on to do what few men have ever done. His career is legendary.
wasn`t yeager an astronaut?
wasn`t yeager an astronaut?
No, but he did train them. He was most famous for his roll as a test pilot and as the first man to break the sound barrier.
hey I was just told that one of my great uncles recieved an outstanding award. im not sure what it was though. maybe you guys could help me find him. thought he might not be on the internet.
Got a name? Was it a military award?
Although I agree with FEM that Manfred and/or Lothar von Richthofen would be great subjects here is some stuff on William Boeing.
I need to do a report on someone that has change the field of aviation or someone that has done something special in the field of aviation.
So what's wrong with Howard Hughes? Don't be distracted by the movie "The Aviator" think outside the square of common perceptions.
Just because H. Hughes was an eccentric and was involved in various other enterprises doesn't mean that he was not a visionary and a pioneer in aviation, sadly all too often not credited for his achievments and foresight just because he was an eccentric. Those selfrighteous witch hunters of the eccentric never seem to be aware of the fact that all geniuses were eccentrics.
Put it this way - if you wish to present a report that stands out from the rest or that which is expected from you, you gotta pick a subject or personality that noone expects. And without meaning to belittle any of the great aviators in history, the problem is their stories and biographies have been regurgitated too many times to keep the audience spellbound.
And that's exactly what you want.
Think about it; here would be a starting point ➡ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_hughes
Take Billy Mitchell.He was the general that made the navy undestand that planes could bomb ships.That way there was a use for planes in war apart from shooting down other one's of recon.Without him,planes would never have dŽbeen used in war and there would have never been a real air force.(My great grandad was his favorite pilot and the first pilot to bomb a ship from a plane).
A paper on Hanna Reisch would be cool too.
it wasn`t as high as the "MEDAL OF HONOR"
it was like um.... a medal of brvery he whent above and behond the call of duty. im not sure but you know what forget about finding him.
oh and thanks for all of your responds you dont have to post anymore thoughts ive made my mind up on who im doing.
