World War II Biplane

Air power played a significant role in World War II

(1939-1945). The vintage Fairey Swordfish, shown

here, contributed to Allied naval victories in 1940

and 1941. This bomber, although not as advanced

as some of the other bombers in use at the time,

crippled an Italian fleet at Taranto and damaged the

German battleship Bismarck.
