Early in WWII the need for a small utility vehicle became apparent. To expedite the manufacturing process some civilian car designs were modified. These small utility vehicles were usually referred to as “tilly�, a play on the word utility. There were 4 major producers of these vehicles, Austin, Hillman, Standard and Morris. Manufacturers kept some of their distinctive physical features such as hoods (bonnets) and grilles. The “tilly� was well suited for the multitude of tasks it was assigned and became an iconic WWII British vehicle.

The Vought F4U Corsair was literally built around the Pratt & Whitney 2,000 HP radial engine.

The engine was so massive and produced so much energy that a Hamilton Standard 13 feet 4

inch propeller, the largest of WWII, was required. The F4U was the first American fighter aircraft

to exceed 400 MPH. The Corsair was referred to by the Japanese as “Whispering Death” and

became a legend in its own time. This aircraft was one of the most distinctive designs with it

bent wings making it an icon.

designated the CA-27 Sabre with first deliveries to the Royal Australian Air Force beginning in

The Northrop E-2 Hawkeye is an all-weather airborne early warning aircraft (AEW). The E-2 was a twin-turboprop developed in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s for the USN. The E-2 is a carrier-capable aircraft and has received major upgrades in their electronics for the E-2B and E-2C with the E-2C also receiving improved turbo-prop engines. The E-2 has been in production since the 1960’s making it the longest production run of any carrier based aircraft. The E-2C variant 
became operational in 1973.

The Northrop Grumman E-2C Hawkeye was first introduced to the IAF in 1981 when 4 aircraft were delivered. Israel was the first foreign country to obtain the E-2Cs. The aircraft were assigned to the 92 Squadron “Daya (Milvus) Squadron” and played a role in the 1982 Lebanon War and other conflicts over the following years. Israel was the first user to install air-to-air refueling capabilities. In 2002 Israel sold 3 of the 4 E-2Cs to Mexico with the remaining aircraft being placed in the Israeli Air Force Museum.

In the 1970’s Soviet air defense systems improved and the U.S. realized they had to develop

aircraft to counter this. Lockheed Skunk Works was tasked with the job and two aircraft were built

under the code name “Have Blue” that proved stealth aircraft could be produced. As a result the

F-117 Nighthawk was developed and first flew in 1981 with the first production F-117 80-10785

making its maiden flight on April 20, 1982 but it wasn’t until 1988 that the Pentagon confirmed its

existence.
