Still struggling with this thing on Prepar3d, not only is starting it problematic if altitude changes but it only goes a hand full of minutes before it starts to lose power for reasons I cannot understand.

Dont forget this bad boy: A6M Zero. You forget the Mosquito, Lancaster, B-17, FW-190, BF110 can go on and on.

For warbird enthuiasts yes, but for the common folk, the Spit, the Mustang and the BF-109 are what they notice and maybe the B17.
My son would just call that a Squealing piglet after the Dogfight game we've been playing :). Japs and Jerry's are the bad guys.

Mosquito and P-38 were also Iconic, think most people should recognize them, and the Stuka.

THE BUGATTI 100P
Its configuration was extremely unusual, both for then and today. Two 8-cylinder Bugatti Type 50 engines were mounted behind the cockpit which drove two contra-rotating propellers up front. It also attempted to make use of the recently discovered ‘Meredith effect’. This was the idea of creating a sort of negative-drag affect why pulling air through a radiator to create an expansion effect that cancels out the drag that would usually be induced. This tech was later used on aircraft like the P-51 Mustang
