Overview

description:

The P-61 was built during the last couple of years of WWII, and was built to be the Army Air Forces purpose built night fighter. The P-61 was a revolutionary aircraft, being one of the few aircraft of WWII with RADAR. The P-61 had a crew of 3- Pilot, Gunner and Radar Operator. With 2 Pratt and Whitney R-2800's, 4 - 50 caliber machine guns and 4 - 20MM cannons in the turrets, it was a very powerful Allied weapon of WWII.

As big as a bomber, as agile as a light plane, this night fighting specialist destroyed hundreds of Axis aircraft during night raids.
