Q: P-47D landing light details
« on: April 05, 2023, 11:26:46 AM »
Does anyone know definitively how the landing light location changed through the models of the P-47?   

I think I have it for the D-25 (just aft of the main gear door on the left wing bottom), but it looks like at some point it was moved outboard near the end of the left wing in the later models?   Not sure also, if it became two lights total (one under each wing)?
