Fisher P-75E Eagle


The Fisher P-75 Eagle heavy fighter first flew in 1943. After a short trial period the first operational Eagles were deployed in 1944 in both Europe and the Pacific.

The aircraft proved to be very successful in the long range escort role. It was very fast and maneuverable. In all 5905 Eagles were built before the end of the war in 1947.

The Eagle remained in US service until 1956 when the last were phased out in favour of the new jet fighters. The Eagle was also used by the RAF and the air forces of France, Norway, Australia, India and Brazil.
