    Aircraft from 1940 to 1949

    The aircraft saw a considerable evolution from 1940 until 1949 thanks, in large part, to a World War that forced technologies to be developed and perfected.





    There are a total of (470) Aircraft from 1940 to 1949 in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order. Flag images indicative of country of origin. Developmental aircraft (i.e. "x-planes") and conceptual aircraft are also included in this listing.
