Which Decade Was It

A few "designer's notes": I tried to strike a balance between aircraft which were well-known and aircraft which were actually more common. The first two US bombers illustrate this contrast -- the first probably isn't the first one you think of, but I felt it was important to recognize it since it was so heavily produced. I also tried to include some utility aircraft and not just fighters and bombers, since they often played a very substantial role. Finally, I tried to include five from each nation (the US got ten, five USAF and five USN); for some nations (like Germany) this meant tough choices on what to leave out, while for others (like the Soviet Union) this meant tough choices on what to put in. Anyway, enjoy!

Do you accept U-2 for Po-2? The designation changed during the war.
