It seems a complicated subject: I get the wrong weights in various places: I am looking for typical loaded weights with no external stores on an early P-47D Razorbacks and a later Bubbletop...

Thanks in advance.

Just wondering Nige, were the figures you gave for painted or NMF P-47's, and are they valid just at sea level or at altitude ?

All depends if they were operational in the E.T.O, the M.T.O or the P.T.O mate.

With everything else I have going on at the moment it just annoys me when I get taken for granted.

Back to bench, got a P-47 to work on for the Pun Ups Campaign
