Which planes got the star treatment — design analysis, extensive coverage, lots of photos — others, some of major importance and some of lesser, were mentioned only in short articles or survey articles. Those planes are gathered here.

Individual planes
Miscellaneous planes
Overviews of various aspects of the major combatants — US, Great Britain, Germany, Japan, Italy — appeared from time to time. Occasional isolated articles appeared on minor Allies, such as Turkey, China, the Netherlands (mostly in the context of the Netherlands East Indies) A wide variety of articles comparing and contrasting different types or styles of planes came out during the war.
Since the European war was first priority for the Allies, German planes got a good deal of detailed attention:
  • "Review of British Warplanes" [ HTML ] , [ PDF, 18.2 MiB ] is an apparently comprehensive listing of types in use by the RAF in early 1942.
  • "Our Planes Can Fight!" [ HTML ] , [ PDF, 9.5 MiB ] was written as a counter to claims in the press of American warplane inadequacies. It mentions several types but goes into the most depth on the P-40.
  • "Japanese Air Power" [ HTML ] focuses on numbers and production capacity of the Japanese air industry.
  • "Typical Soviet Aircraft" [ HTML ] discusses several Soviet types and has 3-view silhouettes of nine types.
  • "American Aircraft in the RAF" [ HTML ] , [ PDF, 2.7 MiB ] goes through the various American types in RAF service in 1942.
  • "New Allied and Axis Planes" [ HTML ] mentions several new types in the fall of 1942, with details on the Typhoon and Stirling.
  • "Germans, Japs Copy American Fighters" [ HTML ] lists a number of fighter planes in use in the first years of the war. To later eyes, it reads as a morale-boosting propaganda piece, downplaying the technical abilities of the Axis by attributing the quality of their warplanes to copying. Nowadays we would be likelier to say that the designers were all working from pretty much the same reference books and engine/armament constraints.
  • "Allied Dive Bombers Outclass Nazi Stuka" [ HTML ] discusses dive bombing and dive bombers, with an emphasis on the Ju-87 Stuka and its shortcomings. While dive bombing remained an important element in the Pacific for some time, it was already being considered obsolete in the European war.
  • "Torpedo Bombers End Battleship Supremacy" [ HTML ] discusses the history and limitations of the torpedo bomber.
  • "Twin-engine Fighters may aid Second Front" [ HTML ] describes three twin-engined fighters — FW-187, Whirlwind, P-38 — and mentions a couple more in development.
  • "Look At the Record!" [ HTML ] , [ PDF, 3.2 MiB ] discusses combat successes with several types, especially the B-17 and P-40.
  • "The World's Best Warplanes" [ HTML ] , [ PDF, 11.1 MiB ] is one of several "World's Best" lists published during the war. This one was compiled by a Public Information Officer in the USAAF.
  • The Italians were never much of a factor in the European air war. "What's Happened to the Italian Air Force?" [ HTML ] discusses the history of the Italian Air Force and the kinds of planes it had available in late 1942.
  • "Air weapons in review" [ HTML ] , [ PDF, 14 MiB ] describes the various armaments used in warplanes, with history, and many of the planes that use the various weapons.
  • "Double Trouble" [ HTML ] , [ PDF, 10.2 MiB ] gives quick capsule descriptions of a number of twin-engined fighters.
  • "5 years of air war" [ HTML ] , [ PDF, 9.5 MiB ] goes into the development histories of five US types.
  • "Low level attack" [ HTML ] discusses the use of aircraft in the low level attack role.
  • "Planes for the Pacific" [ HTML ] discusses the types in use by the US and Japan late in the war.
