WW2 A/c Called Black Widow

Thu Apr 26, 2001 6:28 am

I have been trying to locate a photo of the WW2 twin engine night bomber call the Black Widow. I can't recall if it is the B-61, or P-61. It had a split tail like a P-38.

You are talking about the Northrop P-61 Black Widow night fighter. This was a radar-equipped twin engine (P&W R-2800s) aircraft that replaced earlier intermim aircraft such as the Douglas P-70, a derivative of the A-20 light bomber. The P-61 was replaced after WWII by the North American P-82F/G Twin Mustang night fighter. You should be able to find P-61 photos easily with most search engines.
